You will never meet a man as kind hearted in your life. My Uncle was so many things to me. He was my uncle my friend and my adopted father. He was one of the only positive male influences in my life. Like many of us we shared a special bond. The world is not the same without him in it. I will miss so many things about him. Love you with all my heart Uncle.

The biggest thing about my dad I am missing most is his text messages saying “Are you smiling today?” That in itself always made me smile. I miss you bunches and bunches Dad. I love you. And I know your answer would always be “I love you more” 💔😢🙏🏼
