So sad to learn of Uncle Bax's passing. Very glad we got the opportunity to see him again at Mom's funeral. Been a few years for sure and it was so special to sit on Grandmothers backstep and reminisce.
Many prayers and warm hugs going to you all at this time of loss. God bless and keep you strong. Dauphinee Gaida (Janes).
