R.I.P. Uncle Guy (Ghee)

Usually I’m thrilled to create phrases that rhyme

But I was filled with sadness from writing this time

And as I started to look back on every fond memory

I realized how blessed I was to have an uncle like Guy

I will cherish every visit and every conversation we had

How he always made sure I stayed connected to my dad

I’ll remember how he always spoke of his children with pride

I’ll remember his great smile and the occasional free cab ride

But the greatest gift I’ve received from my uncle Guy

Is always showing me the importance of family

And although you’ve moved on from us physically

You will live forever in my heart and memory

Happy Birthday

THANKS for all your birthday wishes!

Birthday 2012

Happy Birthday to me…

Great friends and family…

Making wishes for the future…

Turning dreams into Reyality…
