Many childhood memories include my Aunts and Uncles, a trailer, card games, lawn games, hamburgers and hotdogs. Also, Christmas nights with the family gathered at Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Dannys house. My heart hurts but I am glad they are together again. Love and peace to family and all who loved him.
