I took these pictures of my dad and Uncle Don one day knowing that my dad didnt have many, if any, pictures with him. We happened to be at the hospital at the same time. They both sat and talked for a good hour about life and family. I knew my dad would appreciate these some day.

Just some photos I remember taking of my dad and Uncle Don. I was getting blood work done this day and Mary and Don both happened to be there at the same time. Dad and Uncle Don sat and chatted for a good hour. Talking about my grandpa Jerry and lots of old memories. I took these pictures knowing that my dad didnt have many, if any, pictures with Uncle Don and that he would appreciate them to look back on some day.
