    My world is a far better place for having had the best uncle I could have ever dreamed of.  I will miss him so much for the rest of my life.  No one could tell a story or a joke like him, and his charm and wisdom and grace will be some of the things I will miss the most.  I am so grateful and privileged to be his family member and join all who knew him in my grief and sorrow.
