So sorry to hear of Uncle Junior's passing. I didn't get the message until today or would have gone to the funeral. I know he will be missed--I loved him the few times I was around him. I hope his spirit is soaring and he is enjoying being reunited with his family in heaven. Much love to Aunt Shirley.
