What can I say about my Uncle Sook??? He was and still is a great man to me I looked up to my Uncle after my Dad passed in 1973. I respect his Air Force career and his service in Vietnam. I've always enjoyed the times we had to have a few beers and shoot the breeze!!! Sook took me to the Air force recruiting office in Charleroi and made sure that when I joined that I was not going to get a bum deal and got a guaranteed job in the military. So my Uncle Sook and my Aunt Jessie I have the utmost respect for the both of you and may my Uncle Rest in PEACE ! Thank you for all that you have done and all the good times we had !! I love you Both with all my heart!!!!!! The Johns Family
