Hey Uncle John. I was up by your old house looking for bottles a couple of weeks ago. I found a brilliant blue bottle. I brought it home and cleaned it and it shone like the sun. I thought bout it and gave it to your sister, Regi. I gave it to her because it reminded me of you and I think she deserved it. Well anyway. I have to go. I love you and miss you
