I have many wonderful memories of growing up with Uncle Mike. I think my earliest are about the bicycles he added motors to. He always treated me as though I was already a grown up. He taought me to type on his old Remington. He was pround of the “E-Racer” he made for Greg with round typewriter erasers for wheels. He was so proud of his invention that he had patented. He loved music, and jokes (no matter how old or corny. I am so glad I had opportunity to visit him in recent years and we stayed in touch by phone. He is missed.
Sorry to hear about the loss of your father. You have our deepest sympathies and condolences.
