    My dearest Uncle, I cant believe you have passed on so soon after your wife's death. You played such an important part in my teen and adult years. Not everyone can say that. You made a difference in my life. I will miss you dearly.. But I will continue to talk with you daily. I do shed tears for you, because I am selfish and miss you. I am sorry you felt the need to go so soon. LIfe has not been all that great to you... but please know you were loved by many and will always be in our hearts. xoxo
