Dear Family,

I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Jr. I feel terrible that I did not get to come see him this last little bit, but I have been under the weather and was afraid to be near him. All that keeps going through my mind is the time that he took such good care of me in the Everglades when I was a child. I will keep him in my heart forever. Love and prayers to all of you.
