Me and Uncle
My Uncle John was my rock and pillar for the entire family. I will miss his wisdom and knowledge of our family legacy. He was not only my Uncle, he became my Dad when I needed guidance and comfort. I could count on him for spiritual conversation and laughter about old times.

I will truly miss my Uncle, but I have too admit I selfishly wanted him not to leave me, but I know he was tired and suffering so he had to rest.

Rest Uncle! You have finished your race for everlasting life. You lived your life for God, and you planted seeds of righteousness with all who would listen. I will see you again in the new system real soon.

Your Neice
I will Miss You❤❤❤
