..this is a pic of my Dad on the left and my uncle Tom on the right…..my uncle just had back surgery ..its kind of a trip for me seeing him fragile…he’s always been so tough and so strong…him and my dad had a junkyard where they salvaged old trucks….my uncle Tom would be out there everyday in his boots and cut of Levis and no shirt with his torch cutting iron….i wish we all stayed strong always….i know growing up going to church i always thought i would be able to see all of my family again in heaven….especially my uncle Levon. I always picture that. But it was until recently that i started thinking…ok cool what if you do..would they be like 30 years old in their prime…or like 20 …or what age…would that even apply to heaven….i don’t know…i just want to think in my mind that i am going to get to see all my family again…..uncle Tom is not gone…thats not why I’m saying this…its just that i kind of keep him preserved in my head somewhere around 50 yrs old…super strong and super tough…..family is the most awesome thing…sometimes i can’t believe i don’t have kids yet…i always wanted to have a big family….hoping uncle Tom gets out of that hospital really quick…oh its a trip too ..the hospital is in downtown LA…i know it well because I’ve dealt with some surgeries of my own there….but my great grandparents live 2 blocks away from the hospital way back in 1900…thats a trip…LA runs deep in our Armenian blood…..I love our city….
