“ uncle “ Dee, I have so many amazing memories of you, I miss you so much. A couple weeks before you were so violently taken from us, Auntie Brenda was doing my hair and you came in from working in the yard, you made some toast but didn’t put anything on it and when I asked why you were eating dry toast you told me you were trying to drop a few pounds. The night you were taken from us is the worst. Our families will always be close and have amazing memories but you are and always will be missed. You were the best uncle ever.
