Stevie, Debbie, and Vicky I hope you know how sorry I am to hear the news of your dad! He was a big man larger than life both inside and out and one of the greatest uncles I could’ve ever had in my life! Him and uncle Wilton came down and spent the day with Mama after she had her stroke and it meant so much to me and to Mama and I’ll never forget that. He used to always call me after the death of my son Vinni and when I got off the phone with him he always made me feel so much better and I can always see that smile on his face. I know he’s where he wants to be right now !with your mama because he loved her dearly as did everybody else. I’m here if y’all ever need to talk or if you need anything and once again I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it because of my health but believe me I will be right there in spirit. I love you uncle Rudy more than you will ever know! I know you and Wilton and mama and Edith are up there with your mama and daddy and I can see the smile on everyone of y’all‘s faces ain my heart.
