"Hi Uncle Wilbur
I was at a party a couple of weeks ago and someone told a very moving story about how you helped 2 young men from our hometown avoid a prison sentence.  You intervened with the victim and pled their case.  You had the victim agree to accept restitution for the damages.  Your kind action spared these 2 men a painful experience.  ALways like you to help those in need.  I miss Your kindness and generosity every day.

I also bought a new Malibu 2 weeks ago.  You really would like it.

Missing you still but trying to live my life with many of the lessons you taught me."
