    Uncle Belvin, you were the best Uncle a girl could ask for, a wonderful father figure in my heart. All of my good childhood memories are the ones I spent with you and Aunt Patsy and the girls. You always made me laugh and I know you understood my heart. Thank you for always opening your doors to me and pushing me to ride good at the play days and rodeos. I know that no matter how you did it… you made sure we were ALL in it. I love you Uncle Belvin and if by some chance you see Aunt Patsy up there, please hug her for me and tell her I miss her too????????
