I don’t know how I feel right now. I am at a loss for words. I know how much I told you that I loved you. I know how much you loved me. I know you are with mom right now and having some ice cream. I bet she couldn’t wait to call you, “Fat Dawg!” I wasn’t ready for you to leave yet. You had been through so much these last few years and I just was not ready for you to leave this earth.
You showed me how to be a man. You taught me how to stick it out when it came to marriage. You taught that loving your children was the most important thing. You taught me how to drive when I was 13 years old. You beat me down in Basketball and made me better.
I will miss you, Uncle Roy. I hope I made you proud. You made me proud.
