There are heroes who walk among us
never looking for glory or praise
they don't seek recognition
for their thoughtful, caring ways.
Living lives of deep commitment
providing for those they hold dear
steadfast with a quiet strength
through times of laughter and tears.
You were the person like that to me
the most selfless man by far
so Uncle Pete, I'd like to thank you
for being the hero that you are.
I will miss you forever and always,
