Ricki Bunce honors her uncle...
I never met my uncle Gearold, I was born a year after his death. I think of him
often, wondering what he was like or what he would be like now. He was only 19
when he was killed in action. He left behind a mother and father, two sisters, and
a younger brother. I want to know so much more about him...I don't know why this
haunts me. All I do know is that my uncle was a great and brave man who will forever
be in my heart and he will never be forgotten.
