[Eric]: Some of these pictures in here—I don’t know if you had a chance to see them while Mary Lynn was talking, but—Uncle Tad and Uncle Steve joking together.
This is not the photo Eric was looking at, but it is evidence of the genetic nature that Gloria describes below. On the left, Tad with horns. On the right, Steve with horns.
[Gloria]: Yeah, that was a good one.
[Eric]: Uncle Tad laughed and laughed. I mean he always was laughing and I love to be around Uncle Tad.
[Gloria]: And, you know, he thought he was the funniest person. He would tell a joke and he’d laugh like it was. And Chris and I—‘cause I do that now. I’ll tell a joke to them two and I’m just a-laughing. And they think, “Why do you think you’re so funny?” My dad was the same way. He just thought he was the funniest person.
[Gail]: It’s the Duncan gene.
[Gloria]: He was a good person.
[Gail]: He had such a good laugh.
