To the best Uncle ever, you will be missed. I remember how kind you were to all us kids growing up, all the animals you brought Mama, the smell of your workshop and the crafts only you could do,I remember you always ask me if the bread was ready yet, cause you came to get my brother one morning for work and I had made bread in his hat, that was a lasting joke for us. You can do woodwork with the original carpenter now, save us a Seattle we get there.

Roger and Polly, I'm so sorry. Hey, I have some woodwork that your dad did and probably a piece that your brother did. I may even have a piece of your work! Many prayers for my friends from way back!
