"Uncle Dewey" I hold such fond memories of you as I was a baby in your arms and grew closer to you each year. I will miss the phone calls I received from you every year on my birthday and calling you back the next day for your birthday. You have the heart of gold and the family will miss you dearly! I love you, Linda.

Our family will not be the same with the loss of "uncle Dewey". We will miss him, but it helps to know he and dad (Moe) are together again. We'll savor our memories until we are joined with you and the rest of our family in heaven.
