    Uncle John, I miss you so much. You are the very best uncle and great uncle. I am forever thankful to you for taking such great care of Mom for these past few years. I hated to see you go, but I know that you are no longer in pain and you are cancer free. When I was watching you after Mom passed, I knew that you were heartbroken and wanted to be with her again. I am just glad that we were able to honor your wishes and let you both go at home like you both wanted. Love, Patsy
