To my Uncle. Although we didn't spend a lot of time together the times we had were very special to me. I always made it a priority to visit you and the family when ever I was in town. One of my most favorite memories was from my last visit. You were trimming up my hair and as you were cutting you had a smile on your face and looked at me with ao much love and said "your hair is just like your father's". At that moment I knew just how much you loved him and me. I am so sorry I never told you how much I love you and how much you mean to me while you were here. I love you Uncle William and always will. REST IN PEACE Unc. Until we meet again.
