My Uncle is a great man. I remember when he would come to Rocky Mount and visit us in his cab car from Baltimore when he drove cab. He would always give us quarters! Every time I spoke with him and I mean EVERYTIME, he would pour in much wisdom to me about various topics like cars and finances. Always optimistic and just HUGE amounts of wisdom and knowledge. Rarely smiled but when he did you knew you were around great company. Uncle Reese Miss you man and Ill see you in the morning.
