It's hard to believe another good man is gone. Uncle Poss I will miss our talks when I came down to visit. You would always tell me Black Baby Uncle Poss is proud of you and what you are doing for yourself. Nobody, but him knows how much I needed that and how much it helped me. I hope you and Daddy are having a time up there. Please, watch over your family you left behind, they miss you and need your strength to go on. Your laughter, love, strength, and kindness will be carried on by your kids and grandkids. I see a lot of you in all of them. Love you and Miss you!

Poss was a proud father. He loved Mark and Rebecca! He loved them so much he would stalk them when they went out! He followed them to make sure they were okay, of course he would never catch them!
