My family keeps fading away.....

My father's dear brother Maximiliano.... my Uncle Max died today.... he passed away in his sleep from what the paramedics determined was most likely a heart attack. My heart is breaking as he was my dad's favorite brother and being that.... he was my favorite Uncle...
He was a medically retired Captain of the Policía Federal in  México aka Federales.... Recently, he and my Aunt  Carmelita resided in Georgetown near the Potomac.  I am very sad today.... I keep losing family....  He had CHF, Congestive Heart Failure ever since being severely shot in 2005. He suffered with several serious chest wounds and his heart was damaged in the result. My Uncle Max was a hero...He saved a woman from a kidnapper.... He fought corruption in our country... He sent many cartel members to prison... He was my hero.... anyhow....  

Today I cry

    An honest federale? That’s more than a hero, he was damn near a unicorn.

      I will respectfully disagree… there are many who serve with honor

        I don’t see it, the corruption of the Federales IS why the cartels are the dominant power in Mexico.
        I’m sure there are good cops out there like your uncle, they tend to get executed.

          He was a good man… the people he worked for were good people… sometimes there were those lower in rank and pay who took many bribes… but he didn’t nor did he know of any of his people who did. As far as I know, all of them were loyal patriots… His title actually was Inspector which here would be the same as a Captain… At that level he was privy to a LOT of people’s backgrounds and at least for him, he only selected those he could rely on, just as I do in my line of work…. Yes, Corruption is a very bad thing… but there were those, like my Uncle who believed in justice and law and order… sounds a little cliché perhaps but he lived it every single day…

            Not cliche at all, it’s just sad that it’s not ubiquitous.
