The Greatest Hero I Knew

Though i was only 3 yrs old when you passed, I do remember you taking me to the Princess Drive-Inn for a shake. I remember your black Chevy convertible. I remember your smile. I later grew up a became Navy service member. Though my experiences could never amount to what you did. Believe me Uncle Jr., I’ve never forgotten. Nor will I ever forget you.

Love You,

Johnny ‘Penguin’ Tunches
