Even though I was completely forgotten in the obituary. You were and always will be my big brother "Horno King of Porno" to many of us. I was told for many years that you were my brother and even though it turned out that biologically you were my uncle. To me and you that never changed our hearts from bother and sister to uncle and neice. So in closing my dear brother, I love you now and always. Please tell our parents I love and miss them terribly. And as always, I am my brothers keeper. Love your Appi Lynn
