Dearest Uncle Hoyt: I will always remember your kindness to me all those years that I was part of such a loving family. Without you and Lotrelle, Aunt Edna and Uncle Warren (Who were the only parents who cared about me and my sisters and brother), I would have never become the woman I am today. You, out of all the others, were non-judgmental, accepting of all people, and such a sweet soul, full of humility. I will always have the greatest respect for you, Big Daddy, as you were so fondly known. Thank you for being a wonderful father to my brother, Lamar, and for setting the example for others to follow. I love you and appreciate all you sacrificed for your entire family.
