    We will miss Uncle Joe. I have the best memories as a child of Uncle Joe and Aunt Jeanne visiting us in North Carolina during the summer. We looked forward to their visit as they always took interest in our school grades, sports activities, and we got to see our cousins. The last visit they made to NC was a few years ago on the 4th of July. Uncle Joe loved eating watermelon and he played corn hole for the first time. He kept calling it the bean bag game. Uncle Joe we will miss you...... NC Hillbillies.
