I have so many great memories of Uncle Garland. A couple of things I would be in ah when he would put on his uniform, I remember us going to visit in Pensacola and he worked part time at a pizza place I remember watching him toss the Pizza in the air. One other thing was Uncle Garland taught me how to spit shine shoes. I can remember on the front porch of Papa and Granny Lancaster house we would shine everyone's shoes or boots. So many more prescious memories!
