R.I.P. Grand Uncle

Dad told me that grand uncle living in Guangzhou passed away at the age of 78 due to pneumonia. He is very upset about it. I feel tremendously sorry for him. I have met grand uncle a few times in my life. He is a great person. I talked to him a few times in my life. He wrote me letters sometimes, telling me how proud he was to have has a nephew like me in the family.

The first time I visited Guangzhou, grandma came with us. He was very hospitable to all of us. He showed us around, and I remember going to the zoo and was excited about it. Then a few years later, he came and stayed at our home for a short while. It was fun to have him sleeping in my room with me. Although I don’t remember the specific incidents, it was a great experience. He was a very warm and caring person.

I respected him for his grand status in the family. I have never met my paternal grandparents, they passed away long before I was born. I know how much my father respected grand uncle, and for me, he’s always a respectable figure like my grandparents. I feel so sorry and sad for our lost of the head of the family.

May he rest in peace and be in a better place now.
