I couldn't have asked for a better Uncle. He was,(and is) a wonderful role model, always with a zen like demeanor and helping hand. I can still remember riding around on his shoulders while we played astronaut.
I can still hear Brrnda saying, "Now John" about something or another and he'd have twinkle in his eye while answering.
