What's great about memories. Nothing takes it away. Not time, not death. We shared lots of that. You would be greatly missed Uncle. You were always so good to me. I have so many memories of when you came home on vacation. To me it was always a look forward. We would take so many photos. You would send me on the corner for ice cream. Boy you loved Tantie Jenny's home made ice cream lol. One cup for you, a cup for me, and a cup for granddaddy. We had lots of fun hanging out. I use to love raiding your suitcase for stuff, and you'd always let me. I could remember making fun of your jerry curls. You had swag, and was always so up beat.
From back home we're sending our love. From your younger brother, which is my dad Earl Stowe, my Mom Rhonda Tyson Stowe and my brother Keron Stowe.
May perpetual light shine upon you, and may you Rest In Peace
