What a beautiful service. We enjoyed all of the pictures shared online, reminding us again of your mother’s laugh and of the strong relationship between she and Ron. The pastor knew her well and knew her heart and her love for her family. She lived a full and loving life and was so proud to be a mother and wife. If you guys did not pick up some sticks and pine cones after the service, I can hear her voice saying that there is still plenty of daylight remaining so get on out in the backyard and go at it! With our most sincere sympathies, Mike and Lee.

Linda, was there ever a neighborhood like ours? We grew up in the most wonderful of times--playing outdoors literally in rain or shine from after breakfast until the sun started to leave our tired but happy bodies. I will always remember you in our covered wagon cowboy games and your great sportsmanship. I can close my eyes and hear you laughing. We were so fortunate to have "Uncle Bill" Poplin as our wonderful neighbor. Remember how he would drive up and open the back door of his Merita Bread truck at the end of his work day and give us TWINKIES! Oh, how fortunate we were to have such simple pleasures and not to be bogged down by cell phones or even ridiculous Television . Remember the week at Ledbetter Lake when he cooked for all of us and we all played and swam together? He taught us so much about safety and kindness. Okay, so that dates us. And my twin, Mary, and I would go over to your house to share our new shoes or latest good books with all of you. You, Carolyn, Bubba, Joyce and Barbara and most definitely, your mother were our other family. Thank God for your life and the good times we all had.
