Aunt Alice,Bob & Joyce, So sorry to hear about Uncle Homers passing.Although I have not seen him in many years I have so many memories of him from when I was growing up that still puts a smile on my face, what comes to mind most when I think of Uncle Homer is riding in the backseat of one of his VW Bugs in the winter and freezing my butt off.I pray God will bring comfort to your heart as you look back and celebrate his 87 years...........Love Rick
