    Dear Uncle Walter,
    You were always like a father to me moreso than my natural father. Thank you and Genieva for being there for me when I came home to visit. You will always have a special place in my heart. We miss you and love you but know you’re in a better place. Rest in peace and let mama know we’ll see you all again. Sorry I couldn’t come to the funeral. Sweet blessings.
