My Uncle Zeke was kind, funny and wonderfully good natured. One couldn't ask for a better golf partner. He so loved the game. He wasn't long (he'd tell you otherwise), but he was straight-right down the middle. Always. It use to get irritating. And oh how the man could putt. The best times I ever had playing golf was with my uncle, my Dad and Dr. John. Those two brothers would go at on a golf course. Competitive. It was entertaining. I can still remember our rounds we played together in Panama City many moons ago. We always had fun. Always.

I wish my Uncle could have met my daughter Dycelle. They would have gotten along grandly. She has my Uncle's feistiness. She's looks like, and is a combination of my Mom and Auntie Jo.

One thing I'll always remember about my Uncle is he always made you think. In his kind and unique way, he always challenged you to be the best you could be. To this day, I can still recall quiet conversations.

Over the years I have thought about him often. He always treated my sisters and I as if we were his own. He was caring, joyful and humble. He was always fun at gatherings.

Auntie Jo, Anne and Paul, I love you dearly. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

God Bless You Uncle. You have everlasting life, because you will never be forgotten. Rest in peace.

Your loving nephew.
