I have many wonderful memories of the lake and family gatherings. Aunt Martha and my Mom (Mittie) often sat at the kitchen table in our house laughing and joking , hugging and sometimes a few tears, but mostly they had HUGE smiles on their faces. Two sisters enjoying each others company. RIP Aunt Martha, you will be in our hearts forever.
