I remember my Uncle Willy from the many family reunions we had when I was
a child, as always smiling. We had many of those reunions at his house with
the "huge garage" for his lime trucks. He always called me "Ma-go" which I
didn't really like, but never forgot him for either. I also remember the huge,
delicious cantalope he used to bring to our house in the summer that he
grew. He has always been, and will continue to be, in my heart.
