I remember Uncle Alan as tall, kind and all smiles. When I lived with Grandad and Grandma, my dad, Robert, and I would visit them often. My name is Roberta Yanuszeski (Koch). My mom was Robert’s first wife I and lived with my grandparents for a few years while my mom was getting the medical care she needed. II am so sorry for your loss and that of Steven. I think I am older that Beth and Steve, but still have pictures from Grandad of the three of us. Love to you all.
