Unc, you were an amazing man that will never be forgotten. You called us every holiday without skipping a beat. I knew every year when my phone rang mother’s day morning, it was you without even looking. And we will miss our yearly package of pecans you would send us. The only man in life that could call me Red! You will truly truly be missed but you will NEVER be forgotten ❤
