    Dear Beloved Godfather, I love you & miss you & will never forget you! I had so much fun spending time with you on Thanksgiving in North Carolina. You made me laugh so much and I loved my tour of the beach! I am sad that you had to go so soon but I know that you'll always be by my side watching over me. It feels better to know that you are out of pain and with God now. I will remember the good times and take those memories with me forever. I love you Uncle Steve!
