Friday Fictioneers –

Uncle Waldo

Sally packed most of the things pulled from the house.  Waldo, her uncle on her mother’s side, had passed on at 81 three days ago from a heart attack.  He had been the love and laugh of her life. Always the jokester; he had lived frugally.  She kept the Hanukkah menorah, the old dial phone, and a photograph of her beloved uncle.  The picture was for tomorrow’s service.  She didn’t feel right.  She looked hard, then picked up a bright red crayon and drew a beard and mustache on her uncle.

“There,” she thought as she smiled, “Now it’s right.”

Namaste,
