God Bless my beloved Uncle Armand (Tootsie). May the Lord wrap him in his loving arms. I will forever hold dear the memories of receiving a letter almost daily from him throughout my service in Desert Storm. Uncle Tootsie also stood proud at about 2:00AM at Westover AFB to welcome me home. As proud as he was of my Marine Corps service, I was just as proud of the fact that he was a Holyoke Policeman who also put his life on the line serving society. I will miss you dearly Uncle Tootsie.
