  4. What can I say? My last and favorite uncle, you were truly one of a kind. You’re sense of humor, laughter and singing will be terribly missed (Al Green….inside joke). A big smile appeared on my face as I wrote that part. I can hear you singing now. God gave you to us for a little while, but he needed you for a more greater purpose. It does my heart good knowing you had the chance to spend time with daddy before you left. I’ll never forget you Unc. Rest easy and know your brother will be okay. We got him! I love you forever and always. You’re oldest niece, Tatia.
