I remember that uncle Billy loved to laugh. I also remember that he got a big kick out of daring us to do things to amuse him. We had no money, so when he offered us 25 cents to touch a hot spark plug we obliged. He also used to pay my mom, Violet money to do his homework. It worked out to everyone’s advantage. He always let you know that you were family and that you were loved.
