This went on for years but I didn’t want to leave because of the big family you had! I was the only chid and every summer I got to have a big family myself! Thanks for the honeybuns everyday when you came home and making my stay there and treating me like I was yours!! Almost forgot thanks for taking us to the coldest creek in the world Turkey Creek!! I’ve got so many memories of you and my cousins when I was a kid and I just wanted you to know thanks for sharing them with me!! Love you Uncle Rex and cousins!! I got one more!! Do you remember when me and Jeff hid in my dads race car for hours and watching all of you looking for us? Then the police came!!! We knew we were in trouble then! Me and Jeff never did that again!!
