  4. Patty Rose says:

    I remember everything even the things I was much too young to remember. You were the first man to send me roses on my birthday, you took me to “fancy” dinners when you would come home from Florida, instead of hanging out with friends. And in the end we got to spend our time together talking about all those old days. You asked to see a google map photo of Mase Hook and Ladder, you FaceTimed with Dad, Mom and got videos from JJ. I can never thank you enough for all that you taught me about life, love and trust. May you always RIP, Dearest Uncle.
