Uncle Tink, I always remember you being a great man. A man to be looked up to. You were always so “cool”. You and Aunt Dee are two of my favorite people in this world. I know you are making some good music in Heaven now and don’t have a care on the world. You are missed and loved! We will see each other again one day! I love you! 💕
