Uncle Junior was so kind and fun. He would joke with us kids and tease us all the time; he was so sweet.  I remember when Helen and Junior and my parents would take trips together. You would all come back and share the stories and laugh about the things you did.  My dad is a hoot and there isn't anything he won't do for a laugh. 

I also remember when all of us would get together at Crystal Lake Park for HUGE family picnics. Our family hasn't done that in ages and I really miss it.  My children have never done it and they don't know what they're missing. .

I am very sorry for your loss. I can't imagine ever losing my dad or my husband and the only thing that makes it bearable is knowing that he is in a better place where he can run, jump, and breathe all without pain. He is now complete in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. May the peace of God be with you all.

All my love.
