My earliest memory of my uncle was when the family came up for Christmas and he played Santa, surprising my dad, who didn't know that he was coming home. I will always remember him for being loving, talkative, and straight-forward...though he'd try to be nice about it if he thought he was being offensive. 😊 Goodbye, dear uncle. Wish I could have seen you one more time. I love you.
