I too couldn't make it but I did want to go. What I remember about my cousin (your Uncle Bill) is that he made rock-gut wine so dry and sneaky it would creep up from behind and knock ya on your . . . .
I remember his sideburns were braided when he came to my dad's funeral, and I thought that was so cool. He started to make a wine vat once and turned it into a Jacuzzi instead. He was a carpenter built a cabin so it couldn't be seen from the road or air, but I never went there.
And what I remember most was that your Mom adored her brother. Both are missed. Thank you for sharing the picture.
Love, Cousin Julie

THIS is a perfect and beautiful memorial! Also, it's great that you got to have this photograph!! I adore how your Uncle went out in such a creative style. His loved ones must have adored him and known him well.

What do you want when you die? I DO NOT want a religious thing. I want to be cremated. People can have a party if they want.

Wanted to say: SORRY it took me so long to come back to visit! I was getting ready for my mom's bday! It was cool You would have approved. Even I made her an Autumnal throne! Well, she deserves it.

Love to you Jenny and THANK you for seeing the magic. I see yours FOR SURE!!



this is wonderful. What a very special thing to do. Sorry you couldn't make it. But happy that you could share it with her from a distance.

and was a nice surprise that you dialed me by mistake:)
