What I wouln't give to be back in that kitchen on 17th St. listening to Uncle Joe explaing how a camera worked or something he had worked on. So much life in that room, can we all be older now than they were then? Also had the chance to go thrugh old "Eldredge" pictures with one day with Uncle Joe and Aunt Margaret, a wonderful day. I'm sorry for your loss , Uncle Joe was always a kind man.
