Many wonderful memories visiting in Indiana running around at Aunt Gert and Uncle Wayne’s house with Chuck’s children. Visiting at Uncle Chuck and Aunt Ruth’s house with the family. Though Ruth is actually our cousin, because of the age differences my sister and called them our Uncle and Aunt. He is a wonderful man and we will see him again in our Lords Home.
