One of the blessings of my uncle’s relocation to the VA near me was that we got to spend a lot of time together. I visited him several times a week. I took him out to eat and to shop frequently. I finally had the opportunity to get to know my elusive Uncle Ronnie. We laughed about funny moments, shared stories about life experiences, and cried about the loss of family members over the years.
He loved to go to Walmart. At first he was able to use a walker to get around, but before long I had to talk him into using a motorized riding cart. He soon knew the layout of the store better than I did.
Good times. Wonderful memories.
