An Uncle Like Alton

Here he is, Uncle Alton, one of the all-time great uncles.
Alton, the fisherman, the lure man!
 He’s everybody’s favorite.
Alton loves all the babies. Here he rocks Jacob and Emma Irene.
They are all pretty happy when they are with their uncle.
Kyle’s favorite in the whole world has always been his uncle Alton!
There is no one greater to run and play rough and tumble with.
 Nobody so cool and totally awesome!
Uncle Alton with Stewart. They look like they could be brothers.
Alton’s nephew, Anden, was born on Alton’s first birthday. They are like cousins.
Feel the love?

 The letter “t” forms a cross to show Alton’s
faith in God. 
The name Alton means strength ( His hand lifts a ton, see?)
Sweet Uncle Alton and sweet little neice, Jessie Lynn.
Alton has 16 neices and nephews now.
Do they love him? Yes, they do!!!

  1. That “Uncle” Alton just needs to get out and catch a fresh stringer of Crappie as it's the season for it! By the way, he's one of my favorites too!
