      Asked him if I could marry his daughter and he said yes. I still don’t know why, but thank God he did.
      Loved him as I did my own father.
      He was kind, generous and he loved his family unconditionally.
      I was privileged to have him in my life for so many years. You are so missed by so many.
      Love you.

    It is always sad when you lose a loved relative, my Uncle no matter the age. I will miss his humor and everything he stood for. I will hold him close in my memories as a child and as an adult. I’ll miss you Uncle JoJo.

    All my love,
    Judy (Wootsins)❤️
