We had the privilege of having Jeff Pino in our lives for two years. It was much too short, but to call him a friend for a short period of time was better than none. Jeff came to us in February 2014 and asked us to take care of his P-51, from that point on we became quick friends. Jeff’s personality was a good match with the Goss family, and although it was so short we felt like Jeff was a longtime friend.

On November 16th 2014, the world lost yet another of “The Greatest Generation”, John Andrew Morrissey, or as many of us know him, Uncle Jack. Jack was an amazing man, he had such a big heart and touched so many lives. Jack is a WWII Navy Veteran. He flew PBYs in the Battle of Midway, and was shot down two or three times. Jack lived to be ninety one years old, and had a very full life, with lots of adventures.
