    E: When did John get his own place? Where did Uncle John live? Did you ever visit Uncle John’s home? What was his home like?

    He lived to be about 94 years old in Hayward, Wis. We didn’t attend his wake or funeral.

    E: What funny things do you remember about Uncle John?
    H: When he lived on Fillmore St., I would always run down stairs to see Uncle John. I called him Uncle “Shan.” I was about four and one day I went down to see him. He was in the kitchen eating his lunch. They were pigtails. He said hello and waved the pigtail at me. I screamed and ran back upstairs. I told my mother he was eating worms and was going to have one bit me.

    E: Do you remember any sad times with Uncle John?
    H: No, he was always fun!

    H: Just when she visited Nana or had a special party.

    E: What else do you remember about Uncle John?
    H: One summer evening he and my father were sitting on the swing on our back porch. They were drinking beer. I said I was thirsty and wanted some. My father said “no.” My Uncle John said “oh have a drink of mine.” I did and it was so horrible I spit it out. I started to cry and he started to laugh. I’ve hated beer ever since.

    E: Can you physically describe him?
    H: About 5 foot 7 inches. Straight dark brown hair. Brown eyes. Full of fun, always making jokes and teasing me. Very nice looking and friendly.
