I remember coming to my uncle Al home for the summer had my first kiss there got tougher from hanging around Unc and Jeff and Kevin . Had some great days just hanging out over there with Snake and the rest of the Rutherford family never an dull moment throwing rocks at one another and and getting beat up by Jeff or listening to Kevin LARGE music collection or crushing on Ms. Hillory . Overall Unc was an cool guy very quiet but very generous to family members always had sitting in that chair reading the paper or waiting on Aunt T to finish cooking . Great man and father I'll always have him in my heart
