RIP James Avery: We’ll Miss You Uncle Phil

By: Thursday January 2, 2014 3:26 pm

Uncle Phil.

Parents just don’t understand!

Despite being short-tempered and full of lectures, he was truly looking out for his family’s best interest.  He worked hard to earn for his family and yet he was always there to listen and lecture and laugh and dance with them.  He was more than his job, and while he took Will into his home reluctantly; with time he came to love him as his own.
