Dear uncle Saco, I will love you forever! Thank you for taking me fishing when I was a small child- that cemented my passion for fishing, always. I'll never forget when that humongous carp broke your fishin' pole and nearly dragged you into the river! :-) Your kind and gentle words will always be an inspiration for me and I will hold you and aunt Eleanor in my heart forever. As you look down from heaven with aunt Eleanor, I ask that youse protect and watch over our entire families and loved ones. May you rest in our Lord Jesus' arms, amen. I love and will miss you terribly, uncle Saco!!! <3

Saco my now gone friend, you'll will be missed by all of us on this earth, but know, you take a little bit of us with you. Recalling the fine Choke Cherry Wine you would brew during some summer month will be a nice memory as well as when me and Marilyn and the kids would drop in to visit with you and Eleanor with you teasing the boys, they would always get a kick out of that lol... I hope they have Trains where your at now, as I can only image what that's going to be like without that train sound during the night (The family lived next to the Train Yard, image the sound they make)... Till we meet again my brother, we send our love...

My dear Uncle Saco, I will forever hold you close to my heart. You were a special Uncle who I love, respected and admired so dearly, your character, and things I learned from you will remain deeply in me.
One thing for certain, I know Aunt Eleanor had something warm and yummy waiting for you to eat when you arrived home in heaven ♡♡
Thank you, Uncle, for always treating me with love and made such a difference in my Brendabaloo
