I always think of Uncle Joe and Aunt Alice as one and two of the sweetest most loving people I’ve ever known. All the wonderful meals Aunt Alice would cook as we sat around the kitchen table. The laughs, the stories, the walks on the farm.....the trips to Florida, parking the camper in our driveway. Those were the best of times.
Till I see you again. ❤️❤️❤️
