Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Uncle Emmanuel,
I loved and admired you.
You were my brave Uncle that conquered all of life’s battles.
May God bless your soul.
Rest in peace.

I will always remember Uncle Emanuel
As a loving , compassionate, dedicated man. The unconditional love for his mother, brothers and sister( my beautiful mother) is what helped shape our family. Distance was never a factor.
We were always excited when a visit took place. We love you Uncle Emanuel!
Your Niece
