  6. Dear uncle Stephen,

    You were a great man. I remember the times we had together with fondness and appreciate that I was lucky enough to have had you in my life. I hate that we didn’t get to spend much time together in your final years on this earth but I know you will be looking over all who know and love you.

    The only thing I can say is thank you for being a big part of my life even if it didn’t seem that way.
    Much love to Melanie, Kate and Laura and their families
