Every day he went to the gas station on Airways for his daily scratch off lottery ticket fix. Uncle June also had a unique way of expressing his affection to his nieces, nephews and church family children. He would tickle their bellies, ask if they were goosy goosy, pop their fingers and toes to see how many “stories” (lies) they told and call them some eccentric names like: Big Sister, Mally Mal, Meat, Nemo, Dadale, Mur, Jack Fuller, Pong-Tong, Taro, Jolesa, NayBoo, Da-rail, Tireek Shaw, Sentry, Flanz and last but not least Daanita AND the Shaws.
