I will miss you here, but one day we will meet again. Heaven is the hope we can hold on to. I believe that with all my heart. I love you uncle, Coke…RIP
We had a wonderful uncle,
One who never really grew old;
His smile was made of sunshine,
And his heart was solid gold;
His eyes were as bright as shiny stars,
And his cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful,
And that’s the way it will always be.
But take heed, because
He’s keeping an eye on all of us,
So, let’s make sure
He will like what he sees.
