I remember growing up and spending the weekend and Papa and Grandma's house. I remember the rabbits he raised in the backyard next to the garden. We would bring in a baby bunny and play with them. They would get loose and run under the couch. We would chase them for hours trying to catch them to return them to the cages outside.

Also remember going fishing out on the lake in his boat. I remember getting so bored just watching the bobber. I would end up just throwing it out and reeling it back in. Even though I was bored I enjoyed it.

These 2 brothers love each other dearly, I know my Dad (Sterling Jay) will miss him a lot. We all will, he was a great Uncle with a wonderful sense of humor. I have wonderful memories of fishing with him and him teaching me how to put a worm on the hook. What a blessing it has been to have him in our lives! Love you Uncle Booger :)
