My Uncles were wonderful to me. When I lived in Chicago Uncle Willie and Auntie Cora Bell's store was next to my school. At lunchtime I would go help out. I got paid in "junk" (candy, pickles, etc.) I loved it. Aunt Cora Bell would say, "Get the damaged stuff". But if there was something I wanted he didn't care how perfect it was I could have it. He would tear the paper and say "can't sale that". I love you Uncle Willie
