I was so saddened to hear of Uncle Julius's passing. The picture is a perfect one - just as I always remembered with that grin of his. I am thankful for getting to see him at Amanda's wedding and at the Ringel's 50th celebration. My love and thoughts are with all of you during this time of sadness.
