I am not sure where to start, over the last few days the memories have been flooding back regarding Aunt Jackie, as well as Uncle Clyde. I am sure they are now back together with all their friends, and relatives.
I can still remember...
...their wedding day and trying to get in the backseat of their limo, which was also our Buick Wildcat, and making sure I signed their reception book.
...being introduced, to our first Hodgkins' cousin Lynne, and later on, our first boy cousin, Joe.
...eating Sam's Italians she had brought home, and finding the best Lobster deals
...going to Taber's driving range and ice cream shop
...Aunt Jackie & Grandpa Stan Hodgkins antiquing.
...helping deconstruct the "Camp" and watching it get renovated into a beautiful cabin on the lake in Winthrop.
...how they let me try to sell my old '73 Ford Galaxie 500 on the lower lot in Greene that became Joe's car, and then recycled by her brother Kenneth.
...meeting up in FL and going down to Fort Myers to the Ford/Edison Museum and the Red Sox training camp.
...so grateful to my cousin Lynne for bringing her parents to AZ for my wedding

your nephew, Mark

To Lynne, Joe and the rest of the family. Thinking of all of you and sending much love and prayers. Your Mom & Dad were very good friends of ours, and we shared many happy times together at their camp in Winthrop and at our home also. Bill and I cherished our fun with them. We had so many laughs and happy times. I will miss you my dear friend.
