Hello Sommer, I can't express the words I want to say because they are too priceless and I'm not sure how I can tell you except to say that I am really sorry your uncle has passed away, if however, we were face to face then I could show you.
If you loved him as much as did, there is not any disgrace in not being able to go to his funeral, it would be too devastating to say goodbye with his family and friends attending, it couldn't be the personal way you wanted to do this, as he meant so much to you.
Sometimes when someone you love passes away, you are still able to carry them on your shoulder and definitely within your heart everywhere you go, you look for the advice they would have given you and then act on it in this way.
My heart goes out to you and remember, he's still with you and you can hold this for as long as you want.
My deepest thoughts.
