I'm grieving today over the passing of my uncle, Morgan Betts. I've looked up to him since I was a small child, and my admiration and respect for him will never wain.
I'm grateful for all the time he spent with me when I was young, for showing me how to skip rocks on water, for teaching me to sail, for inspiring me to become a pilot, as he was, for helping me land a great job in NYC after I graduated from college and for the many, many long distance conversations we've had over the last few decades.
I'm astonished by how clear and sharp his mind remained and how young he sounded until his last day. He was the best uncle one could hope for. I will miss him greatly.
