I wanted to send my deepest sympathies to Iona, Stephen, Karl and Ed. I loved spending time in your home back in high school. When I think back to those days I can fondly recall your dad sitting at the kitchen table just taking it all in and saying funny and sarcastic remarks based on his observations that would crack me up! He was so sweet to me and always made me feel welcome. I pray that you can come together and get through this difficult time. Sending my love. Prayers going up..

As I grow older and raise my own children I hope I can emulate the calm presence Mr Uftring always had. I would’ve beaten us with a bat many times but I now understand that giving your children a place to be stupid where you can watch over them takes a brave and caring man. All memories of him are warm and inviting and I can’t thank him enough for always being supportive of my journey to become a surgeon. Raising 3 sons who would take a bullet for their friends says something about the man who helped raise them. You will be missed.
