Uncle Jr and I have woodsplitting and woodburning in common, in fact our last conversation was of trees! I see fit to plant one in his name, with my deepest sympathies, condolences and loving memories

Many childhood memories of Uncle Jr dressing up as Santa even into my adulthood for my children to experience him! I will always remember his joking nature as well as his laugh to go with it!
