He was quiet, hated taking pictures and always kept to himself, but he was a giver.
He had few close friends, would take a simple nod over verbal expression and rarely showed emotion, but he was a giver.
He had many bad habits, very little money and never owned the first suit, but he was a giver.
He embraced hard work, loved his family and rarely asked anything of anyone else, but he was a giver.
He didn't watch television, preferred the radio over SportsCenter and the only time he yelled was when he found out Coach Saban was coming to Bama, but he was a giver.
My uncle never saw Saban in Crimson, but he knew he would be a winner. He missed the 2007 struggles, the 12 straight victories in 2008, rocky block in 2009, the rematch in 2011 and Bama-ND in 2012, but before it all he knew he would be a winner.
After 6 years my only hope is this, with Bama sitting atop the highest mountain reaching the heavens, maybe my uncle can finally receive the joy of seeing Coach Saban in crimson. The two have never been closer...

That was really cool. I'm sure he's enjoying this ride somewhere.
Your uncle hasn't missed a thing--in fact, he's got the best seats in the house.

I'd like to think so. He gave so much I'd like to believe he's received some of the same joys that we have lately.
