    “Dear uncle of many nieces and nephews” is quite right and I am very glad to have been one of them. It was always a happy time to visit with my Uncle John and Aunt Mary Ann, and enjoy their great Italian cooking! Uncle John will be missed by many and loved by all. Our best wishes to Aunt Mary Ann; may God bless you both. Love, Greg & Wilma SIndewald
