I'm so sad but proud of a man I had the pleasure of calling uncle. He was one of the staples and anchors of my life. He thought more highly of me than I deserved and loved me more than I knew. I miss him now and will feel his absence at every joyous occasion that he would have attended if he were still with us. Luckily he has a great family that, when I'm with them, will always remind me of Uncle Eddie.
