I was about 5 yrs old, this is when my uncle worked for the town so about 39 yrs ago. The best part of recess @ Nathan Hale School was seeing the yellow park & rec truck in the field. I knew my uncle was there. I'd run up and give him sucj a big hug & kiss. And he would look at me with his big smile. That was the highlight of my day at that age. He was always so kind and big hearted. God Bless and be at peace and rest along side your beloved wife.
