I have such fond memories of Uncle Morris up in CT. Boy he was such a tease at Uncle Leo and Auntie Loretta’s. The wonderful memories I still have of you, Edel and my Granny sitting under the big Weeping Willow tree in her yard drinking iced tea while you told your stories from Germany. I would sit and listen in such fascination of how the world was so big when i was just a little girl. I am so sorry for you and your families loss, Edel. You are in my prayers.
