Uncle Johnny was the best I really didn't get to know him well until I was an adult, I visited the family in Florida a handful of times as I was growing up, as an adult I was able to spend hours listening to stories of his work, home, raising my cousins, him loving on his grandchildren, the cows, crazy stories about some of the cows, raising them, helping them give birth, some of them fellowing him around like a little kid and most of all his hunting stories. I never got to join him and the boys on one of his hunting trips, I would have learned a lot and had fun doing it. See you real soon, give Johnny and my mom a hug for me. Love your nephew David (Eve).
