“It has broke my heart to loose my Uncle. Not only because I am family, but because he was one of the FUN Uncles every kid needs. He loved to buy the toys your parents didn’t want you to have. Like lots and lots of Noise makers and the NOISER THE BETTER!!! LOL! Also, when our Daddy was killed, he and my other Amazing Uncles and Aunts stepped up and took on the help of raising us kids. They have always been there no matter what. Anyway, I know I’ve almost written a book here… but I wanted y’all to know that we lost an amazing man that has done so much for not only my family, but for Gustine and Comanche also.”
