    We are going to miss you Uncle RC. All the teasing you’d give John for showing up at Dad’s barefooted and all the outraged phone calls when you discovered Republican campaign posters in your yard only years later to find out John did it and Dad knew about. Till we meet again, you are loved and will be missed.
