Will only give you a few.When Uncle Carlo was in the Army and would come home on furlough the first thing he did was come to my house to see Me and Mary ,even if it was the middle of the night he would wake us up Hug and kiss us and call us his Angels.everytime he came home we would wait for this. He always made sure my mon had enough food for us. I remember Grandma reading his letters and we would get so excited.He was my Hero.He and uncle Joe would take the whole family on picnics with his truck.We would have so much fun. Thanks uncle for being my hero. LOve Lolly and Dan
