Uncle Oakie, I miss my wild and crazy uncle. I'll never forget your recipe for grilling...and how you could make those coals sizzle. It's funny the memories that stick in our mind. I can't wait to hear all your stories in Heaven... Miss you much! -

By far the most entertaining of the family. I don't think there was ever a time where he didn't make someone smile or laugh. I miss you uncle. -
