Uncle Riley was such a warm and kind man. He always made you feel so important and was very genuine about wanting to know how you and your family were doing. I was only lucky enough to see him when our paths crossed while visiting grandmother Fowler. He always had a huge smile on his face and was so down to earth and caring. My dad Charles had such respect for him and admire the man that he was.

To Diana, Milly, Bucky and Salley Ann, I'm so very sorry for your loss but I know that he is in heaven looking down on you all with great pride and love. He will live on through you all and your children as well. Hang on to your sweet memories and may God carry you through this sad time.
