Everyone should have an Uncle Dios!

We attract hearts by the qualities we display:
we retain them by the qualities we possess.

My dear Melissa who had just walked down the aisle seven hours ago to be wed to the man she loves is the luckiest girl in the world. She has so many wonderful men in her life….. her Dad (My Hero) her handsome prince (the groom) and her Uncle Dios.


Ever since she was born Uncle Dios has been there for her teaching her and listening to her. She can change the oil in her car, change a tire and basically keep all her old vehicles running because Uncle Dios knew that every young woman should have those skills, he has always been a wonderful teacher. This time of her life was no different Uncle Dios was right there doing everything he could to make Melissa’s big day the best it could possibly be.


Uncle Dios was at the farm, this place where the bride needed to get married every day till long after sunset. I the mother of the bride on several occasions watched as Uncle Dios and My Hero balanced on ladders (which we have many if you remember) and climbed into tractor buckets trying to construct a tent enclosure out of pipe that had been lying in our scrap pile for years, working long into the night by the light of those tractor headlights. After all we needed to protect those special people that were coming to the farm to watch Melissa marry her handsome prince. The weather had been checked every hour for weeks leading up to the big event and we all knew it was a  likely scenario that rain would be our uninvited guest.

Well I know you all are thinking that is a lot of work climbing ladders, constructing building frames and getting ready for the big day but Uncle Dios did not think that was going to be enough for his niece so after leaving the farm late at night he would head home into his shop and work on a very special surprise. I have it on high authority his poor aching body kept going and going without complaint till his mission was finished.


Uncle Dios you see has a very special talent he can take an old frame from someone’s scrap pile and turn it into a work of art. He is indeed a master carpenter and wood magician who turned wood from long ago into beautiful wagons. Wagons that were possibly used by other brides and their handsome prince’s in an era gone by.


Uncle Dios had spent many many hours planning, sanding, cutting and creating something for his niece and her handsome prince to enjoy on the best day of their lives. A photographer and a little girl’s dream wedding were being created in a shop by an Uncle who has always been there. One wagon was not going to be enough so Uncle Dios put in a phone call to a man who had bought his last creation and this man agreed there should be two works of Uncle Dios art at this wedding.


With an incredible Dad and an Uncle Dios, and now her handsome prince she is indeed the luckiest girl in the world. What could be better than that?



Thank you Uncle Dios and enjoy that vacation you truly earned it and are loved and appreciated. No words could ever express our true feelings for your generosity and unconditional love and making our little girl’s dream come true.
