  1. Many of my favorite childhood memories were spent at Aunt Lori and Uncle John’s house. Eating tacos, going on Easter Egg hunts, collecting apples to feed Grannies horses, and best of all playing “beauty parlor” with Uncle John. That tough motorcycle man had a soft spot for letting his nieces do whatever they wanted, which sometimes included putting his hair in pink rollers! Thank you for the great memories Uncle John, you will be missed!
