To my uncle b
You will forever be in my thoughts, you gave me the best opportunity to live my dream of playing football in the USA and you got to see me play, it was only a week before the terrible news that we had been discussing your visit to the uk, I will always remind my children the love you gave us when we were younger and how much you loved to call on a Sunday when spurs beat Utd,
You may have been taken uncle b but you will never be forgotten
Love you ❤️

To my brothers family and friends
Thank you all for the messages that show how loved my brother was. For those that knew of his support of Spurs the only reason he was is because of me. When we moved to England from Abertillery we discovered football and he bought an Arsenal shirt I made such a fuss our mam told him to give it to me and gave him money to buy something else so a spurs fan was created
Years and miles never separated us and neither will this
