I can still hear that great laugh,Uncle John. You made everyone feel so special - those summer visits were awesome - I can still see you with your white belt and white shoes and I have some of your letters you wrote home to Mom during the war years - you made everyone around you happy. God bless and keep you and say hi to Mom for me. Eileen

Pa- You were the greatest man I knew next to my dad. We had so many great times together and I know my dad greeted you up in heaven, I'm sure he saved you a nice fillet, half a pound of salt, and a nice cold coca cola. I bet he even had some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup for dessert, no nuts, no whipped cream, no cherries. I love you so much! Mary
