My Uncle Icky passed away on Friday. Ninety years old, he had lead a rich and wonderful life and touched thousands of souls in the process. He was an amazing man - thoughtful, compassionate, positive in his outlook - an unstoppable force who brought joy and love to all who knew him.
I wrote about Uncle Icky last year on Veteran's Day and it's worth reading (or re-reading) the post to get to know a fraction of this incredible man.
I am also going to share some photos from his 90th birthday in May of this year. It was held at Belmont Stakes (to say that Icky liked to play the ponies is an understatement) and in my mind, that day was the greatest tribute we could have given him.
