Such a surprise, yet true happiness for Uncle to be now in Gloryland with His beloved Heavenly Father! I can remember going for an ice cream cone together at one of Uncle John's favorite ice cream parlors at Ocean City, NJ and talking over life issues of the day, listening close to his advice! Also, I have many memories of him joining around the piano singing perfect bass all those hymns he so loved. We will really miss him at our family gatherings at his home! We love you Uncle John!
