    RICHARD OAKES says:
    Uncles have a special role. Not being our father, they can be a friend and a supporter in a different way than anyone else in our lives. They are both a relative and a companion; one of the few people able to be both. Whether they are only seen at holidays or our fishing buddy and mentor, the loss of an uncle is a particularly hard one. Their loss, however, is filled with the years of happy memories we had, and that special connection that belongs only to uncles.
    And i have a life time of great ones with you uncle Henri
    I love you, And you will for ever be in my thoughts and prayers <3

    I believe this is how Uncle Henri lived his dash. He lived for and loved his wife Virginia and daughter Doreen, and grandchild, Amanda. They were his life, completely.
