When I lost everyone else, you were there on the porch swing in Red Level. We had so many things in common. So many wonderful talks. Sometimes, not always, things click and you know that person is very special. My prayers for you and Carole were sadly refused. God wanted you more, and He deserves your integrity, thoughtful words, help, sense of humor, and your smile- all the things you gave to me. I've always said the tears are there due to all the happiness that went before. I wanted so badly for that final phone call to come to let you know how much you'd meant to me, but I know you understand. You always did. Miss you, buddy.

You were a great Uncle, always felt welcomed into your home from the time you and Aunt Carole watched me when I was baby to the last I saw you last year before you moved to back to Florida. You were always fun to talk to and be around, you will always be missed.
