    My Uncle Joe

    The manliest man I have ever known. Retired from Dallas police dept after 30 years. One of the best outdoorsman, tough as a boot but the most gentle, kind uncle a kid could have.

    He had a major stroke 3 years ago while loading a deer in his sxs. It was one that most do not recover from. The dr told my aunt she had to make the call to pull the plug and she could not. A week later he left the hospital and lived a semi-normal life until tonight....

    Tonight, the 77 year old he-man, grandfather, husband, Baptist deacon, put a 357 to his ear and pulled the trigger.

    I’m not too good at asking for favors but my aunt Sandra and cousin Alicia needs all the prayers that y’all can give.

    Thanks

    Stopped and already prayed for all of you.

    I HATE suicide. I hate it as much as I hate anything. That poor wife is going to live out her days with too many unanswered questions and that isn't right.

    Will continue lifting all of you up.

    Thank you and you are right, she is an unbelievable woman who deserves better.

    I’m fighting the emotions. I really looked up to this man so I hate that I’m feeling like his great life is now reduced to one cowardice act

    Praying for y’all 4point that’s tough for sure. Not to side track this, but sometimes I think meds have side affects that most still truly don’t know. They will be in my prayers.

    I will certainly pray for you all, and for his soul that suffered and the pain became to much! I for one know it wasnt a “cowardly” act, it it was I’d have been dead maybe 20 times already! There are times I wake up at night with scriptures and songs going in my mind, and other tilmes that are so terrible I cant mention them here! I have even prayed for my own death providing that it would please God if I went on to hell! One night...the night I was saved from death and hell; I was ready to sacrifice my life to save a young unwed mother from abuse by a huge hulking thug that was all over her in a bar in Camden Arkansas! When I stepped in between with the big end of a cue stick, and stared into his eyes....everything went into slow motion; and then he was gone! I had know this thug would likely kill me....but it didnt happen! The next day I found myself on my knees appologizing to my wife for leaving her and my kids, and have remained here ever since! Keep your precious memories of your uncle, and dont let the evil of hate live in any part of you ever! God help you all get through this terrible thing. Amen!

    I'd figure you are right. I've been given medicine with instructions, take this and see what it does. I'd rather take medicine that the doctor knows what it is going to do. I'm going thru a round now, where I think I'm more of a customer than a patient.

    And very sorry to hear of mr4pt.s' uncle, prayers and thoughts for all of the family.
