My uncle was a very special man. His passion for life, love of family and friends and positive outlook was evident in everything he did, day in and day out. No matter what the challenge or obstacle he would face, and believe me he faced many, he overcame them with compassion and drive that inspired anyone who knew him.
Our family loss this incredible man this past Saturday, after a lengthy illness which he fought to the very end. As is such a reflection of his nature, he made one of his last requests that upon his passing, donations be made to a cause that was very dear to his heart - the Brain and Behavior Foundation.
I know most of you did not know my uncle, and that is truly unfortunate, but in his memory and as a final tribute to such an inspirational man, I ask that if possible, you help me make his last wish one he would be extremely proud of. Any donation, of any amount, will be greatly appreciated and so graciously accepted.
I thank each of you for taking the time to read this note and for supporting this cause.
On behalf of, and most importantly, in memory of my Uncle Al - THANK YOU!
100% of your generous donation will go directly to the research for this worthwhile cause.
