The Uncle in this story has certainly had to bear a seemingly unfair amount of loss. This is a sad account of their lives together. The memories shared are written in a vivid and descriptive way. If this is a true story, he DOES need prayer-poor man.

I like how you introduce us to your cousins and aunt and then tell us how they died. You made this very personal. Good job. I will be praying for this uncle. Such a hard life.

So sad! But I like your title and how you explained it in the first half. Ice Cream Dreams. Very creative descriptions! ^_^
So much emotion your reader can feel the saddness and the descriptions are so vivid. I too, will pray for your uncle.

A very strong piece - I definitely prayed for your uncle, Marita. What a man - and what he has been through!
