I thought of You today with Love
But that is Nothing New
I thought about you yesterday
And days before that too
I sometimes think of you in silence
I often speak your name
Now all I have is memories
And your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake
With which we will never part.
I have you in my Heart

Although we never got to see each other often my memories are many
Christmas gifts, my 1st day of school, going to the creek and so many more
Always with a video camera in hand. I remember not liking the video camera always in my face and in the faces of all our family. But as the years have gone by I love and cherish those videos, and now I am crying, and as I am crying I am now laughing because of so many memories of you and those movie cameras, from 8mm to high tech video .I will miss you Uncle George
Love You now and forever
Your Niece Josie
I have done my Duty. Kisses
