I'll always remember all the times Uncle John was filming or showing recordings from his 8mm camera, before the ease of digital cameras and smart phones he was helping us all get a glimpse of ourselves as others saw us, and preserving treasured memories to relive. along with his sweet, loving presence and that gentle, mischievous laugh, I'm grateful for the way he brought the future to us.
