One of my fondest memories was him taking a group sledding in his prize red vw back in the mid 60s at Dorthia Dix Hospital in Raleigh. He was someone very special to all who know him and his beloved Wilma . I loved his laugh and dry humor. He was a prized gardener and jack of all trades. Mr.U you will be missed by many, but I'm so happy that you have been united with Mrs. U. Love to all the family and prayers of comfort. Nancy
