With heavy heart I sigh this guest book, knowing I have lost my very special Uncle. You were always there to listen to my troubles and to crack a joke or tease away my tears and make me laugh with tears running down my cheeks and to council me when I didn’t have my own father to give me guidance. My heart has a very big hole in with you passing. You were and will always be my #1 Uncle. May God welcome you with open arms.

With a sad heart we sign this book, remembering all the good times growing up with a wonderful uncle who always had time to listen and who would crack a joke and have us laughing until we were in tears. You were the uncle who was #1in my life. No one could ever take your place and with tears I send this, knowing my world has a very large hole in from your leaving.
