Sweet Memories

Yesterday, April 9th I received news from my cousin that my Uncle Larry passed away, Uncle Larry was my mother's older brother. I do not write this post for sympathy or condolences but simply to share with the world what a lovely, wonderful man my Uncle was. You may not know that by these simple words I write, but I know in my heart you will see it in these pictures I's in his smile and the spirit he conveys.

As the old saying goes; "A picture is worth a thousands words"...
