Whenever I visited my old Uncle Barney I’d rush up to his chair, ask to see his pocket watch holding out my small trembling hands.

Uncle Barney would always say “ I trust you” placing the watch in my hands. I felt so big so grownup, popping the cover and starring at time starring back at me.

On one of my visits my Aunt stopped me from running over to him. Uncle Barney was silhouetted against the window starring at his watch.

The next day dad told me Uncle Barney had died, he left me the watch and the trust.
