Uncle Joannie you will be missed. I will always remember the Christmas visits when my sister and I would walk to the front door acting like we had just walked from Atlanta. We never missed a year and you even kept the tree up until March when we couldn't make it in December. To this day I can't buy cereal that is full of sugar without thinking of you and all the best sugar filled, cavity causing selections you had waiting for us on each trip. It's with those memories that you'll be with me forever.

I love you,
