My uncle was one of the finest men I have ever known. He brought so much happiness to our family and his passing has left a void that simply cannot be replaced. His compassion, strong moral compass, fun-loving nature and deep love for his family are some of his qualities I will miss most. I love him so much and will miss him deeply.
