My Uncle Died Today

My uncle died today
I don't know what to say
He was my fave.

Full of vim and vigor
Didn't need gun and a trigger
To have his say.

Slightly misogynist
But ain't the best of us
Flawed in some way?

I'll miss Abbott.
Has been my habit
To love him every single day.

    Nancy, there is nothing more valuable than to be loved---at least I don't think so. Something tells me that he would (does) love your sarcasm and humor mixed with love because it seems that was him.
