It seems fitting to share this on Memorial Day. Joseph Alfred Buono was my uncle. He was just 19 when he died in the icy North Atlantic. His sister Esther ( my mother) is still living at 94 and her mother Mary ( my grandmother) lived to be 102. Through their stories and cherished memories, we grew up knowing the uncle we never met.
To all service members, past and present: Thank you and God Bless.
