I was always so excited to see Uncle Bob and Aunt Dot when they came down to Md. to visit and when we came up. They both were so very special to me . We did alot together when I was growing up...., so many happy memories. He always took time with me and made me feel special. I was a huge comic book fan and he gave me some of his he had from long ago and I still have them. Him and Dad took me camping and we went fishing together. He loved going into DC for different festivals ...we went many times. He loved the outdoors and hunting and fishing and camping. I remember the little camper he had that we went camping in and he painted a picture on the inside of a deer on a mountain....he was so talented in painting and all kinds of crafts....and always made Mom and I presents...that mean so much to us. He even made his own real racoon hat that he added wiggly eyes to , that I thought was the coolest. I always looked up to him. He had the very best laugh and such a cute smile. He was one of my very favorite people in the world and I will always hold very, very wonderful memories of him. I will truly miss him. My cousin Bobby reminds me so much of him.....and Bobby I know he is so proud of you and will be watching over you and Beth and Derrick too. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you........
