  • I love my Great uncle he was amazing. It has been 2 years and 14 days since he has passed away.I wish that god didn’t take him away from us he was an amazing guy I loved him with all of my heart and I still do even if he has passed away that doesn’t mean I am going to stop loving him just because he has passed on you can still love someone while they’re gone.I just wish one last time before he died if I could have told him I loved him.I wish that there was such thing as a phone so that you could call someone in heaven from your family that passed away so that you can at least talk to them on last time.But all of you know that he was a good man and he was the most greatest Great Uncle in the world.
