Uncle Raleigh was a very special uncle and will be greatly missed. He never failed to come by Daddy’s house whenever we came to town. He would sit and have a little dessert and ask about our garden. Uncle Raleigh had a little smile that will never be forgotten.

Ralaigh, I will forever remember the time we spent together. The fishing trips, the lunch outings and the riding around Spokane. We went to a lot of funerals together. Didn’t expect this one. I love you like a big brother. Until we meet again.
