Uncle Early: It feels like yesterday when you left me. I will always remember you. I was 12 years old but I can still remember that day vividly. The church was over-flowing with people in uniform. I remember thinking that there was no one left in town to protect anyone because they were all at your funeral. We had some great times together and I loved you then and I still love you now. I will continue to keep your grave cleaned and leave flowers there for you so that you will know that I will never forget you. You are our family hero. I know you are happy because you are now with your parents, all of your brothers and sisters and many nieces and nephews. God Bless and continue to RIP.
