Uncle T,
You are the moon and the stars to so many of us and you made us feel like we were too.
I've never been referred to as " precious cargo" by anyone except you and I love it every time I hear it. You always say " I'll kill a stick and drown a drop of water over you." That right there, is endless love and that's what we have for you.
I am going to miss you so much. I am so grateful and honored to call you Uncle T.
