To my Uncle Mike....I am sorry I cannot travel to say my last good-byes to you. I know you would understand. Nothing is harder than having to say good-bye to someone you love. My memories go back to my childhood, the many Summers I spent with you and Aunt Mammie and all the years that followed. I will always remember our telephone conversations every couple of weeks where we shared our lives. You made me laugh, you taught me things I never knew, your sense of humor. I will always remember our last visit together. I know there are many who will mourn your passing. May your family and friends find comfort in your memories. Rest in peace Uncle Mike, and know that I will never forget you and you will always have a special place in my heart. I will end this with the last words we always said to each other: I Love You.
