Uncle Irving was one of my father's four brothers. Granny had five boys. Irving was born with Cerebral Palsy and impaired hearing. He died today at the age of 85. He lived with my Granny until she died at the age of 99. One of his brothers and his kids took him into their families and he was in very very good and loving hands. Thanks so much to the Marshall Fines' for all you did for Uncle Irving. We could all witness your kindness and love for him.
He was a wonderful uncle. I have fond memories of him and he was a beloved member of our family. He worked at a Northern California convent for over thirty years as a groundskeeper and drove to work and back every day. He was Granny's life-long chauffeur because she never learned to drive. A wonderful gentle soul who always took an interest in his many nieces and nephews and grands and great-grands.
He did not have an easy life but he never ever succumbed to self-pity.
We love you Irving. Thanks for being in our lives. I speak for all of us.
