I loved having lunch dates with Uncle Fred and Aunt Jean. His jokes to my mom. And the lil jokes we said to each other while my mom and and her sister would talk. We had some great laughs that they didn't even know what we were laughing about. I'll miss those days. But I will always have the memories. Love you all past the moon.
