    Uncle David, my heart is full of sadness and doubt. Totally didn’t see this coming and I wish the outcome was different. I am truly thankful for the time, experiences and adventure we have shared throughout this life. I will never forget you, or let your memory fade. I’ll share stories of the past with your grand children, the same way you did with me. I will miss you forever, and think of you often. Love, your nephew…

    Uncle, I want to thank you for your help when I was young. I thank you for giving me some happy times in my turbulent childhood. I am so full of regret that I did not listen to my heart and come see you before I moved. I am sorry. We are working on it.
