"To my Uncle Edward, Whenever my parents and I would visit Seattle, I would look forward to it. I got to go on a plane, eat lots of food, and explore the city my mother lived in for several years. However, what I looked most forward to was spending time with you. I always referred to you as my favorite uncle. You took the time to play with me, and the days I visited always flew by. Those fond memories have stuck with me, even though I haven?t seen you in 15 years. I am sure if I visited during my adult years, we would have gotten along just the same. If my memory serves correct, you enjoyed Mr. Brown iced coffee. So the next time I see a can, I?ll buy it and drink it in honor of you. I miss you dearly and am grateful we had a chance to connect in my younger years. May you be happy, and may you be at peace. With love, Raymond"
