This was my Uncle Clar, my dad's youngest brother.  He has been fighting the same fight my dad did for the past 2 years and lost his battle Tuesday past.  He was my stand in dad when we lived in NL, and even danced with Dad and I during my wedding "father and daughter dance".  I know he is in heaven right now with my dad, and they are probably playing crib and watching to see if the NHL will be playing in September.  I miss you Uncle Clar.
