Life isn’t ease by no means but when I was around you, you always made it look worthwhile. I always saw you smiling, kept it pushing regardless of the situation, and saw the value in each day, each dollar, and every moment.  

By far the sharpest and most handsome. You stayed sharp, even if it was a crisp white tee. 

I will forever cherish moments of laughter, jokes, and generally “shooting the shit” with you. You’ll always be my favorite uncle.
 
Forever Uncle Wayne, forever Huey “WANYE” Hicks. 

With Love,

Glo
