I am thinking of a moment in time when my beautiful Aunt Connie, her husband, Uncle Joe, and my cousin John David came for Easter In March that year, to my then home in West Covina. As they were leaving, my daughter, Renee all of 7 years of age, reached up to Uncle Joe and said “will you and Auntie Connie take me to your house at the beach to spend the night? And my Aunt and Uncle hugged her and said “next time”. There was never going to be a next time, my Uncle Joe died the following month in April. I now think of the three of them, Auntie Connie, Uncle Joe and John David , so joyous so happy to finally be together once again.
