The only uncle of mine I was never able to meet. The obituary says you were survived by your mother and brothers. But you have 2 sisters as well. Joanne and Rosalie. Tom, Jim, Johnny, and Patrick were his brothers. Margaret was his mother. (My grandmother) Joseph was his father. I'm one of Rosalies son's. My mom respected you so much that she named my oldest brother after you and gave him our grandfather's name for a middle name.
