Back to life

If I could bring one person back from the dead, I think it would be my uncle Rick.  He passed away suddenly a couple of years ago, just after Christmas, a few days before his 61st birthday.

My uncle was a quiet man, but one of those people who would do anything for you.  Really, anything.  I can remember staying at his place as a kid, watching scary movies.  He always had cool stuff.  And man, he could cook.  The meals he’d prepare were something.

I feel like he was gone too soon.  He doesn’t get to see his four grandchildren grow up.  He doesn’t get to be there for all the things he should be there for.  He died before his mother.  That’s not supposed to happen.  Whether you’re 6 or 61, you’re not supposed to die before your parents.

I feel like the world was a better place with him in it.  So I’d bring him back.

September Writing Prompt #5.  If you could bring one person back from the dead, who would it be?
