    I am so sorry for the loss of Uncle Gus. He is one of the most wonderful men I have ever known. I have so many fond memories of your family coming to our Columbus family on the 4th of July every year. What a great time we had. And our trips to Omaha to be with family – dinner at Mr. C’s. The ladies in heaven are waiting in line to dance with him! He is with his sweetheart, Aunt Annie.
