Bill, the his is your cousin Philip. Uncle Joe is my father. I am so sorry about Ann. I'm remember Glenn and I visited and spent time with you, Mikey, John, Ann , your Mother , and your Dad(Carl). My mother just lost her mother at 101 years. I would truly love to be there and kinda reconnect with my dad's family. My dad has a huge respect and love for you. I remember seeing you and John many years ago along with Ann. Please accept my condolences for Ann. I would love to meet and see you again someday. As I have have been getting older, I find the need to reconnect with my family. Thank you Bill.
