    To write down this somber rhyme
    Uncle Bob, I have so much to say
    Now that you have gone way
    We didn’t make much time together on this earth
    Maybe in the afterlife we can correct that.
    So for now we’ll say our goodbyes
    As so many tears fill my eyes
    And I hope you’ll remember the happiness
    you gave to oh so many, and good old Mike Kline
