    candle 1My Grandmother was Estelle. Even though I have not seen Uncle Joe in decades, I will always remember him. He was the Uncle that lived down the street from us. He and Aunt Mary gave my Mom (Marion) the idea to have my siblings and myself say “Yes Maam, No Maam, Yes Sir. No sir. etc.” Believe it or not, I am grateful for that. He was the Uncle that always had a smile on his face. Rest in Peace Uncle Joe. Give Grandma and Mom a big hug from me.
