I can only think about one good nickname for someone today and that nickname is Uncle Memo. Uncle Memo has died and he will be buried on Sunday. So, what does his nickname stand for, Guillermo! Some called him Bill, but to us he was and always will be called Uncle Memo!
Some nicknames are more terms of endearment rather than a real nickname. For example my Uncle Morrie was nicknamed Uncle Mokie by my then 2 year old son! But it stuck and always made Uncle Mokie smile. Another Uncle of mine whose name was Robert was nicknamed Ruby. No, his birthday was not in July, it was in October! But he was called Uncle Ruby by everybody, not just family!
So, today I think about and remember 3 Uncles that I love and miss!
