The 1000 yard Stare
Once upon a time, my mom and dad had my great uncles, Max and Wupper. They're both gone now but never forgotten. Twice a year, my peeps get that "1,000 yard stare". It's kind of weird, like they can see something, a long ways off, but just barely. At least twice a year, they get that far-away look and Thursday will be eight years ago that my uncle Wupper passed. He was preceded by my other uncle, Max, who had passed away just ten weeks earlier that year. That was a really tough year for my peeps. Really tough. Wupper was 18 and Max was 15. A good long time many would say. But really, is it ever long enough?
