I owe a lot to Uncle Mike. He urged me to attend college and study geology -- a traditionally male field. It was difficult, but my uncle was always there to encourage me. Since Aunt Barbara died, I've wished I lived closer, so I could be there for him, like he was for me. We still talk and laugh on the phone, but it's obvious he's forgetful and getting confused at times. I worry that he's not eating properly and he might forget to take his medications.
