  1. I remember uncle Huey when I was a child in Stockton, CA. He and Iris & evan moved into a place a few blocks away. Later Hugh came back with Donnie and wayne and they stayed downtown in an apartment. I stayed with them one day and it was the coolest time I had (no details) they were all great fun to be around, especially after they put away a couple of rounds. One night they came over while out painting the town, we all laughed so hard, the icing on the cake was Wayne dancing around the dining room with a mop for his partner. I didn't get to see any of them very often, but not because I didn't want to. I just went with the flow. It is great to have a large family and not have any negative memories, and so it was with Huey and all of my aunts and uncles. They really made up what I believe a family should be. I will remember Huey the rest of my days as a good man and a great person to be around.
