Sending condolences and much sympathy. Also, I just want to share that I have the fondest memories of Uncle Lioney. He was forever smiling , joking, ready with a tale of his humorous antics, and full of sincerity and generosity. I always remember feeling like he just lit up the room with his vibrant personality, and sometimes his bright Hawaiian shirts! May he rest in peace.
