Sending lots of love to our Prince George Cousins.

Uncle was a character and a half. He was Mom's favorite brother. She often talks about their road trips, his charming personality and how much she loved him.

My other half is a "collector" of things. Uncle was like a kid in a candy store when he visited our place. In particular he coveted an old Detroit 4 wheel drive tractor that languished in the bushes on our property. He so wanted that tractor.

Uncle is missed.
