I learned about Mr. Ingold shortly after sharing some memories with a friend of going to the Covered Bridge Festival for so many years. Mr. Ingold was a special part of those trips, such a sweet and kind man. It was an honor to have shared those times with him. My condolences to all of the Ingold family. He left a beautiful legacy.
