My Uncle Jimmy! When I was a kid every time I would see him I would shake his hand and he would tell me I need to have a stronger grip. Then he would tell me the “Claw Man” is going to get me until I squeeze his hand back. He would stand up put his big hand in the air & snatch me up over his head with on arm and throw me on the couch screaming the “Claw Man is getting you” while he was tickling me! Haha I would almost piss my pants from laughing and that didn’t stop until I was maybe 12! I wish it never stopped! I was always excited to see him and he always brought a smile to my face. I want to send my condolences to my cousins & my aunt Lupe! I love you Uncle Jimmy! Watch over us.
