I will sorely miss my favorite Uncle UJ, (Uncle John).
I have always looked up to him and regarded him as a father figure.
His Snipe hunting skills were unmatched in the sport, and as hard as we tried, my son and I always just seemed to miss bagging one of our own!
I was truly blessed and fortunate to have had my Uncle John in my life!
