My uncle, Aldo Moser, passed away due to complications from a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer. I would like to dedicate this post to him.
I would like to recount a nice story about working side-by-side with my uncle, who worked as a licensed electrician.
About 6 years ago, I remember being awakened on an early Saturday morning by some hammering. It turned out that uncle Aldo and my dad were in the process of installing new electrical outlets and needed to chisel out a portion of the house foundation to fit the outlet. Curious to learn how to do the work, I had asked if I could be of any assistance. Uncle Aldo handed me the chisel and hammer and took the time to explain what needed to be done. With the patience of a gentle teacher, uncle Aldo offered tips on chiseling out the concrete, setting the outlet in place and hooking up the wires for the outlet.
The picture below is of my uncle in January 2010 enjoying the challenge of putting together a jigsaw puzzle.
