    Uncle John was not too sure about the rides at Disney world. I was only 8 years old I was scared of most of the rides there. But if uncle John went one them I knew they were safe. If he didn’t go on the rides I wouldn’t either! Love you uncle John our loss is heavens gain!

    Uncle John was a gentle and kind soul. So many memories of him being at our house when I was a kid. He never talked bad about anyone. I will miss him very much!
