  • I loved my Uncle Junior he was just the best. Always with a funny story or just words to make you think on. I know he is with my Mom, Aunt Helen ( who I also miss), Mamma and Pappa. The Heavens rejoiced at his home coming. Donna Geising

  • Sure will miss him. I'll never forget going to visit him and Connie. Wonderful people and very loved. Always loved hearing him sing and I'll never forget how he taught me some things on the harmonica when I stayed with him.
