    My first love, my soul mate, my heart... I look forward to seeing you again. Until then may you enjoy your new adventure surrounded by your loved ones who went before you. I will think of you smiling and drawings roses, fishing on the banks and releasing them and laughing with your Pa- him winking with a cigar stuck in the corner of his mouth while you two share a secret. And finally, you and your sister Connie whom I know you were close to and separated from at a young age are reconnected now. Until later my love, Your Patricia XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOs

    We were closer than other people knew, we were related by marriage but would have still been friends. You were the uncle that my children knew. It hurts my heart so deeply the misery that you endured all the way to the end. The only solace I have is that you are at peace now and nothing can ever hurt you again. I hope to see you again many years from now - wink - wink.

    The hardest thing is to write is a goodbye letter. So I don't want to say goodbye. Till we see each other again. I have nothing but great memories with you. You never said "no". we know the mad dog story but there is so much more of me growing up. The field trip to Saint Augustine , the letting me drive the little blue car. The making me tough and not giving up. The laughs. So much more. The list can go on. You and I will always have them and I will never for get you uncle Greg, never... I was able to talk with you the night before your passing which helps me be at peace. You are not in pain anymore. My family wanted nothing but the best for you. Save me a seat. Till we see each other again bud. God bless... You will always be in my prayers - your nephew lil Mike

    From the sister that never got to hug you in person, but from the first time we spoke, held you so dearly to my heart. Even though we never met I felt that I knew you well.We formed a bond that will last forever. See you on the other side. My love forever and always, Sis
