    I remember turtle trapping with Uncle Larry (Aquaman) and Jack. It was so funny. We got a couple good size turtles. They were in the bed of the 6 wheeler. I was sitting on the corner of the bed, wearing shorts. With my legs above the turtles. He was driving a little fast. So he hit a bump and the snapping turtle popped up while trying to bite me. It barely touched the back of my leg. I sort of jumped/fell off the six wheeler. Larry and Jack laughed at me for the rest of the day. He always made me laugh. I can think of 100 stories. He always made me laugh when I was feeling anxious or uncomfortable at big gatherings. I really appreciated and needed that. He was a good man. I loved him and will miss him greatly.
