"Happy Birthday Unc,

Not many others have inspired me the way you did. You had a very powerful influence on my life and will continue to for the rest of my life. You were there for me when I needed someone to guide me in the right direction at a very pivotal point in my life when I was only 18 years old. You encouraged me to follow my dreams, think big, and reach my full potential while experiencing life and learning from the process. Each word you shared with me was always intended for learning some of life's most precious lessons. Failure is never a final destination, only a learning experience to change the approach and keep moving. I am proud of how far I have come since the times we would sit and talk about my future. Although I wish we could still have some of those talks, I am extremely fortunate for the ones that we did. You were an endless source of wisdom and I truly appreciate everything that you shared with me. I finally made it to Los Angeles, the city where you ended up. Being here makes me feel more connected to you and I know you are there watching from heaven. I promise to stay in communication through spirit and I know you will to continue to guide me in the right direction. We still have a long way to go and I am eager to see what the future has in store. Thank you for everything, Unc. Enjoy your birthday and rest peacefully. We will talk soon. Love, Mick"

"Doc was my dentist when I was younger and lived in P.A. To this day he is the only dentist I wasnt afraid to go to. I remember him as being very kind and funny. He always told me I had perfect teeth. I always wondered if he still had his office in houston. I didnt know him well or for very long but I can say he was a great guy with a big heart. May he rest in peace and his family find comfort."

who really was a friend.  I felt his frustrations of not
being able to talk, but he was a fast printer and we
communicated very well.  He is and always will be a

all of those who had any contact with him. Love, Jeanette."
