In Loving Memory of Uncle Bob - Robert D. Williams.
I never imagined this day would really come. It all seems like a dream that I can't awake from, and no matter what anyone else said/says or thinks about you, you will always be my favorite uncle. Not only because you filled me up with candy and made sure I had money for the ice cream truck, but because you were the most honest, and most real person I know. You never held anything back, you always spoke your mind, and never cared what anyone else thought and I love you for that. You will never ever be forgotten and you will always have a spot in my heart. I love you always, your niece – Peaches
wrote your name in the sky but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand
but the waves washed it away. I
wrote your name in my heart and forever it will stay. I will miss you
so much! It’s so hard to say
goodbye to someone you care for so much. I love and miss you already.
Well this isn't a goodbye, but tell my uncle I said hello.
Well it hurts to know that I lost another uncle. You will be missed and at least you are in a better place now. Your nephew will keep you company up there. God can take you off this earth at any given time and even though your time was soon, God needed you to come home. I love you. You are gone but never ever will be forgotten. – Your niece - Aujanique
