I remember staying at Aunt Joann's and Uncle Gene's over the summers back in the day when I was younger. Becky, Randy, Barb, Kathy and Todd always made you feel welcome. I'll never forget Becky would laugh so hard, she would have tears, when I would sabotage Aunt Maxine's (Aunt Chubby) car. I would use these small firecrackers with strings at both ends. I would attach them to the door of her car, when she opened the car door, you guessed it, BOOM. Becky thought I was nuts, but she enjoyed a good laugh, especially when Chubby would cuss me out. Becky, you will be missed. Please do me a favor, Say hi to Aunt Joann and Uncle Gene. God bless you. Your cousin Tom(Puff) Potter.
