My Uncle John passed away last night



I had posted this picture of my Uncle John (on the left) and my Dad a little while ago. This picture was probably taken in the 1970's. My Uncle John lost his battle with 3 different kinds of cancer last night around 10:00 p.m. He was living in Montrose, Colorado and is survived by my Aunt May, their son, Michael, my cousins, John, Karen and Mary from his first marriage and numerous grandchildren. My uncle was a POW in the Korean War. He was my father's second eldest brother. He was a residential builder, just like all 3 of his brothers. He lived a hard life and he will be missed. Fly away to a better place Uncle John-may you rest in peace!

I'm so sorry Sherri. It's always so very sad and painful to lose a loved one. I hope your uncle's passing was not too difficult for him and he did not suffer.

I loved seeing the wedding photos of your daughter. How wonderful! It must have been such a beautiful wedding.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
