I have many great memories with you! I used to love seeing you and uncle Fred when y’all would visit. Your house always felt like home with candy and great conversation (even for us young kids) . I appreciated y’all letting me mow your lawn when you guys would be living in PA! I looked forward to a 30$ check in the mail lol especially because I would cut my grandparents lawn for 20$ which was 3x bigger atleast! I love you and hope you and Uncle Fred are together watching over us! Love you
