    The word that always come to mind when thinking about Uncle Leo and Aunt Carole is “Fun”. Over many years my family enjoyed so many family reunions, pig roasts, boating, fishing, picnics, steak fries over bon fires and excellent food and desserts. But the genuine warmth and love that we always experienced will always be appreciated. I trust that Aunt Carole, Uncle Leo and Linda are together watching out for us. My heart goes out to the kids, grand kids and friends who I am sure will miss her.
