Uncle John was very special. He always had a gentle smile and a kind word. I remember when Aunt Angie and and Uncle John came to Montreal on their boat and I met them with Luisa and Sarah at the docks. The girls were little then and loved the idea of being on the boat, even though it did not go anywhere. It was a special day. With heartfelt condolences, Ada
