I'm so sorry and saddened by
Uncle Sugs passing. I wish we
could have made it to say
goidbye and to be with you
during this difficult time but
moms health at this time made
it impossible. Uncle Sug is
with the rest of the family
patiently watching and waiting
for us to join him. God gained
another angel and I am so proud
to call him my Uncle Sug. Fond
memories will be with me
always. I love you all, and
may God comfort your hearts
