When it first happened
My uncle was hit by a train on the side of the car he was sitting on. He wasn't the one driving, the person driving was 18 but that person was slightly damaged.
My uncle Chris died at a young age, he was only 19 when he died.
The end of the story
He said that it happened two days before he told me because; he didn’t want me to be upset at school. He also said that my uncle wasn’t the one driving and died because, the car got hit by a train. It was on Google and the news so I looked it up. I went to the funeral and I couldn’t do anything but cry, there were a lot of people there so it made it worse. I still think about him always because he was one of my favorite uncles and I and he were closer than I am with my own blood brother. I got over my problem by thinking about him with everything I did and it made me do things even harder. Like playing basketball, every time I think about him when I play I play harder and work harder. He was the best and we always shared laughs and we would still do it until…he got train wrecked!
