I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have left are memories, and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake from which Ill never part. God has you in his hands now. I have you in my heart.
Unc, it hurts so much to know I'll never hear you call me your Goonie again, that we'll never laugh together or share our new favorite song, but it makes me happy to know you'll know no more pain and struggle. I love you always. Hug grandma for me. Sam the Goonie

Dorsey, you were a great uncle to my wife, a good man, and a good friend even in struggle. You will be sorely missed.
