    I will miss you dearly and think of you daily. I think it still feels so unreal for everyone that you really aren’t here anymore but we know that you are always with us. You were the best Uncle. I will miss you picking at me, I will miss hearing you sing, and I will miss hearing you tell stories. Keep a watch over my family and give PawPaw a big Hug for me. Love you Always!
