RIP Daniel Rodd Noetling 1952-2013

I've just been informed that my Uncle has passed away a few days ago at the facility he was in out in Pasadena. If I'm correct he's been there for a while, and hopefully his transition was uneventful.

While I knew this day was coming, I am not prepared at all. The wave of emotions that has rushed through me has really thrown me for a loop. I feel loss, sadness and incredible guilt that I didn't try to do more for him, even though I was and am unequipped to deal with his kind of illness, and I've been told by many, many people that I did the best I could for him.

That doesn't mitigate a damn thing.

My father's side of the family is almost all gone now. Thankfully I still have my Great-Aunt Annette (who would be Kaylee's Great-GRAND-Aunt, which is awesome) and her children and grand-children, but they are Peters. As for Noetlings, not that there were very many of them in the first place, but now there are none left besides me and Kaylee. And that whole other side of the family that's related to me in a tangentially sort of way. The Rev. Suloff knows more.

I'd like to write more, but I'm just so...
