RIP Uncle Emmitt! We all miss you a lot. I know my dad misses you more than anything in the world. He lost his best friend when he lost you and that makes me sad. You never got to meet my son. And Carvis has a daughter now! I just miss your laugh and allllll of your crazy jokes. I most of all miss seeing how much my dad loved and admired you! Rest on Unc! We will love you forever!
