One of my fondest memories of Uncle John were when we went to visit Dad at Grams. Uncle John would give us a dollar to go to the candy store...LOL. Well, one day he gave us $5. and with penny candy that goes a long way. Needless to say I had a belly ache when Dad came home from work...LOL.  We may not of seen each other that much, but you have always been with me. You will be missed!
