Buddy you were more than just an Uncle. Their aren’t to many memories I have that don’t involve you. Thank you for all you have done for me and my little family. I’m grateful for all you taught me but most of grateful for you loving me like a son. Erica, Shelbi , Amelia and I will forever miss you. We love you and will see you again. Me personally, I will miss just being able to call you and just talk or have you give me advice and just joke with you. I love you Buddy
