Uncle Dud

When my grandmother woke up on New Year's Day, she had six siblings living.

Now she has four.

My uncle Dud died this afternoon. He was Grandma's youngest brother, I think her favorite brother. He had been sick for quite some time, but it was still a very sudden decline--earlier in the weekend he was able to go out and do things with Onie and his grandkids.

I think the things I will remember most fondly about my uncle Dud are his big, booming laugh and his ease and happiness with small children. When I look up at the glass in the skyscrapers in this city I love, I think of my uncle who put it there.
