Always liked talking ( gossiping ) with him when I would see him on his porch! Would lose track of time talking to him. Going to miss him very much.

My Dad had five brothers but my Uncle Bob was the one that lived closest to us. He would often stop by our house to chat with my Dad about hunting, fishing, news of the day. They would sit at our kitchen table and have a beer (or two or three) or maybe a cup of coffee if it was earlier in the day. I moved to California over 40 years ago, but whenever I would come back to Pennsylvania to visit, I would always go visit my uncle Bob and my Aunt Myra. Of all his brothers, I think my Uncle Bob was the most like my Dad. Recently I told my cousin Lori that as long as Uncle Bob was alive, I felt like I still had a little piece of my Dad with me. Now that Uncle Bob has passed, I no longer have that piece. But I can't feel too bad about it. Now that all my Dad's brithers and sisters have passed, I feel sure there's a huge celebration going on in heaven.

Correction. My Dad had six brothers. I never got to meet James but definitely didn't mean to exclude him.
