His quiet strength spoke volumes. The thing that stands out so clear to me are the Disney characters he painted on the wall going upstairs. I never missed a day looking at them when I was there. He also made a hope chest for me. I caught my first fish (catfish) in the pond on the property he shared with my grandma at the age of approximately 11. He was much more than just an uncle... and he will be missed very much.
