My memory is more of a over due thank you and a apology I wish I could go back and say while I had the chance to still while my uncle wako was still trying be my uncle and be there for me like he's always been there for any family even if they were wrong he still tried always seeing there reason saying it's "Till the hub caps fall off" and I wasn't the best nephew or even the most truthful and alot of time I spent away from my uncle and family but whenever id come around or something happened my uncle always made sure I was ok and gave me a reason to be stronger than the current situation ..
He always put family first and not once did he turn his back on anyone who came to him and even when I turned mine he was still there to tell me he had my back and that nothing anyone does means anything about who they are and nothing is to much to not over come even if it breaks you to pieces ...
but that that's what family is for and if you need them they'll be there already holding the pieces for you when your ready to pick them up again.
He gave advice he knew from going through himself and he always was able to make you feel like it was worth no more time or thought then "polishing a turd" (his words)...
He was strict and he was quick to say you were wrong or say his opinion on whatever even if you didn't want it but he was truthful and honest with you and never thought less or made you feel less but instead he said he had your back till the hub caps fell off and made sure you knew you had family.......
Right or wrong, mad or happy, picking sides or not, regardless of anyone feeling some way .....My uncle Wako "Albert" always said family is first and he always put his family first even if he was last.....
(I'm sorry Wako and I do understand what you are saying and I should of trusted you and let you know I loved you more than I showed and you were always my uncle and at times more but always you were family.
