I wrote this to my Uncle Bob on September 29, 2006 and took to the hospital. He never got to read it.
Dear Uncle Bob:
I don't know why it is but the hurried lives we live these days allow too little time for the truly important things like talking to each other. That is why I chose to sit down and write this to you.
I just learned that you have cancer and I wept. I have cried many tears in the last 8 years, tears for the loss of my husband, Mike who was my friend and my soul mate, tears for the loss of your beloved sister and my mom, tears of joy at the birth of my grandchildren, tears of joy when I heard Ellen sing at your anniversary celebration at church, tears of happiness when I see how my children have grown up to be all that we wanted them to be and more. The tears just keep coming.
I have held you in my heart for many, many years and have never had the strenght or the chance to tell you how I feel until now. How horrible is that? I wait until I hear the horrible news of your disease before I can sit down and write this and tell you how much you mean to me. I thought you would be around forever. How selfish I am to want to keep all my loved ones forever?? You probably don't realize this or have even given it any thought but you raised 3 children and then, without knowing it, became a father figure for Bobby and me. Not that I didn't have a Dad or that he was bad. Not at all. I loved him too. But i have placed you aboe him in that you have always been there, always ready to listen, always strong in your beliefs, always helping others and never thinking of yourself and sometimes, even a little hard headed and stern but that is part of being a "Carr". A part of who you are.
I will never forget how you and Aunt Ginny embraced me when I turned Catholic and I looked to you for your approval. You have always re assured me that even though I was of a different faith, you loved me no matter what. I think back on how you and Aunt Ginny came for countless hours to help Honey when she needed you and the countless hours you spent at the nursing home, helping Bob and Carol get through the long hours of waiting for Mom to die. I was the "weekend daughter" and wasn't there but you were. You helped ease the long days and nights for Bob and Carol, even just sharing a meal and giving them someone to talk to. Just the small things you have done mean so much. You and Aunt Ginny never got mad at when when I let my anger get the best of me. You just let me vent and you both assured me that it was okay. I need your love, especially when I didn't deserve it. I am trying to forget the things that make me sad and remember all the thinkgs that make me glad. Especially when you tell the story of when you came home from the service and saw me for the first time, my diaper full up to my neck. I remember when I use to rub your belly and ask you if there was a baby in there. I remember seeing you with the mousie hair cut and then I have to laugh because my son has now shaved his head on purpose!!
Money, gifts, cars, big bank accounts, things. None of that matters. It is what you gave to me and to others. You have YOURSELF. And that doesn't have a price tag on it. The measure of life, is not its duration but its donation. Please know that your donation to me is that no matter what, you have loved me for me and who I am and I am proud to have called you "Uncle". Nothing is so potent as the silent influence of a good example. I wish I was more like you. I am so thankful for the godly example you have been for me and thankful and proud to call you "Uncle". I love you more than you will ever know. Your loving niece, Donna

Ellen and Ellen's Mom,

Pop was an example of God's finest work. He and God got together the other day and made a decision.
Now he is truly in good hands.
We must stay here and reflect his image.

Sincere Love from Barb, Chad, Pasha and Robyn

Bob walked the walk and talked the talk of a true man of God. No doubt that right now he is singing in Heaven's choir.

To My "Pops",
I love you dearly and will miss you always. You will forever be in my heart. Thank you for the love and concern you had for me and my family. Save a place for me right next to you in "Heaven's Choir".
Your "kid" will miss you.
