To one of the greatest men I have ever known and even greater Uncle.  I was and am still very blessed to have had you in my life not only as family but as a role model.  In your life you touched so many people and even changed their lives for the better.  One of my earliest memories of you is when you came to school and picked me up in the police cruiser in Richwood from Kindergarten.  I thought I was so cool!  I could see my house from the school but hey....  At least I would get a dollar bill and an ice cream cone out of the ride and a smile on my face.  You were more than an Uncle to me but was also a father figure as well as my Best Friend.  We had many great memories that I will always treasure in my heart and my children had the pleasure of making memories with you as well.  You and Sissy playing the X-Box, teaching her how to take care of you and giving insulin in the event of an emergency when you stayed with us and Tyler.....  well we won't go there butthead!!!  :)  Well I guess we can, the Fathead advice on how to be well, you know.  Not to forget the two step-daughters and the memories you made with them.  Oh, how they loved Uncle Fathead's kitchen at breakfast time. "Fathead's Kitchen is now open, what do you want?" They all loved you to the moon and back.  I will greatly miss you and being able to call and vent to you on the phone.  You were always able to give great advice and keep my temper under control.  For all that you have done for our family, loved ones, friends and even strangers we could never Thank You enough.  You will be greatly missed but will always live on in our hearts and in spirit.  By the way....  What happened to the 2-dollar bills I gave you in the hospital???  Did you stash them just so I could give you 2 more?  I will love you always and forever....  until we meet again..... Love you
