God saw that you were getting tired, a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered Julius “Come With Me” with tearful eyes I watched you fight and saw you fade away, although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay, a golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest, God broke my hearts to prove to me he only takes “The Best.”
Rest in peace my sweet uncle I love you and I did all that I could for you
