Uncle Connie, Cousin Violet and Frank,

Tusa Jennie was one of my favorite tusas! I will remember all the great times we had when I was growing up and especially the old blue Pontiac Catalina that she let me drive on occasion. I still may her colac twice a year and everyone loves it! Dumnezeu sa-l ierte si Vesnica Pomenire!

Your nephew and cousin,
