Some of the fondest memories of my childhood belong to Aunt Jean, Uncle Bobby and the cousins, swimming, cookouts and games for all. Once playing a golf tournament, Aunt Jean and Uncle Bobby came to North Carolina and made a point to contact me. I excitedly took my little family to meet the fun loving couple. My love to the McKenney family. Thank you Aunt Jean for all the love and laughter.
