Robin, Marty & Candy,
Many sweet memories come rushing in when I think of Uncle J. K. and your family. We kids had so many good times getting into trouble! (We'll talk later. .) You had a good daddy and are blessed with such a legacy. I look forward to that wonderful day when we will all be together in perfect bodies and have more sweet times together. I love you all.
