Item description for I Wish I Had An Uncle Dick by Jacqueline W. Wilson...
Overview Growing up in the forties, we became best friends, my brother and I. I watched Dick grow tall in stature and strong in character. He became a loving father. Compassionate and loyal, he was unusually perceptive in his approach to life. Perhaps it was during the years that Dick spent as a truck driver with only the Lord as a traveling companion when he learned to trust him. For when cancer gave an ultimatum, he never faltered in his confidence that his Savior would guide him safely to his final destination. A niece beautifully described his outlook: "Uncle Dick helped me understand life's inequities," she said. "I watched him reconcile many hardships with the Lord. Even when death was inevitable, he seemed to say, 'Okay, Lord, if that's the way it is, it's all right.' He just smiled, and went on." Dick touched our lives, and left behind an imprint of faith and hope.

Anyone can appreciate this book! Feb 21, 2004
This book was written with a very personal tone but anyone can appreciate it. The author is brave enough to share personal insights and thoughts with the reader, and does so in a way that is honest and strong but not "preachy." The writing has a flair that is both refreshing and entertaining. A story unfolds before the reader that even people who aren't familiar with the family will appreciate, as it carries universal themes that sometimes seem to be missing in today's world. I thank Ms. Wilson for sharing this with us!
Poignant & Memorable! Nov 27, 2003
I found myself wishing that I too had an Uncle Dick. I laughed & cried & want to say thank you to Ms Wilson for lovingly creating a beautiful memory of her brother, Dick. Having known the characters, I found the veracity of the story to be refreshing. Except for the dire need of an Editor, I found this touching biography to be a great read.
