The Best Uncle

I know that he never had to do it, and I don't know if my Mom "Betty" said anything to him, But he and Aunt Faye would take me to Dorney Park for years.I loved both of them so much for just thinking about me. They were both kind and loving people. This is to Lori, I am sorry that we lost touch, Please forgive for not being there when you lost your Mom.
