My sweet uncle John! He loved that southern gospel music. I bet he is up there singing with the Goodman’s and Jake Hess right now..I have great memories of digging potatoes all day in his always huge garden.. fishing at Toledo Bend and camping! We caught 42 bluegill one time! I can’t even express how much fun that was and how much we laughed!Oh and he taught me how to catch Louisiana crawfish with bacon!Swiming in the creek on a Sunday afternoon! Shellin peas in lawn chairs or pecans... with the bloodhounds laying Playing me as a kid this was an adventure you didn’t get in the city! Going to church.. Liberty Chapel.. for Easter in our homemade dresses Grandma Williams made.Uncle John was excited to share his life! He loved that church his dad( my grandpa ) helped build! And the big ole liberty bell I liked to ring.Yes I have wonderful memories of my summers with Uncle John and Aunt Marge, Dennis and their big family! One Glorious day uncle I will see you again in heaven!❤️
