Now the stories are starting to come full circle.

When Fresh Prince Of Bel Air star James Avery died, all of America mourned the passing of their Uncle Phil.
But for Will Smith, James really was Uncle Phil. Will finally addressed the passing of his friend and mentor by sharing this pic (above) on Facebook of his TV family and their formidable father figure, writing:
"This photo was the last time we were together"
"Some of my greatest lessons in Acting, Living and being a respectable human being came through James Avery. Every young man needs an Uncle
Phil. Rest in Peace"
And thanks to Will and James, everyone kind of did have an Uncle Phil. He will be greatly missed.
We're so sorry for your loss, Will.
