My Uncle "Abie" was a very special man, and I'm very lucky to have had him in my life. His love of family, devotion to his religion and kindness to absolutely everyone set an example that I will always strive to equal. I take solace in the fact that he's now in a better place and walking with the Lord. I love him and I'll miss him, but Uncle Abe's life was a life well lived!
