    …I remember countless Sunday afternoons at Uncle Jack & Aunt Addies doing all those things we kids did back then….just running around the backyard into a “woods”? Uncle Jack and my dad (Uncle Joe) out there with us. We were together so much, the cousin line blurred into just a larger family. He/they were my favorites. I bet the party has already started. Rest In Peace..

    ….going to Aunt Addies & Uncle Jacks on Sunday afternoon was one of the things we did as kids. Seemingly, cousins melded into ‘one’ . Of all the Aunts & Uncles…..I liked them the best. Rest In Peace ….thank you for your service.

  6. David & Ling Mozina

    I remember always being greeted with Uncle Jack’s trademark smile and Aunt Addie’s friendly embrace. I trust they are smiling together again in the great golf course in the sky. Our deepest condolences to Uncle Jack’s family. You are in our prayers.
