Aunt Linda meant a great deal to me. I remember when Sparks TV was next to the bakery and she used to take myself and my brother over to get gingerbread cookies. I still go looking for a bakery that sells gingerbread cookies around Christmas time. I have fond memories of going for a walk through the pasture and swimming in the pool. I will always remember the large family gatherings that we had at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. I do not think I have ever seen so much food in one place as I did at those gatherings. She will be missed and I am sorry for your loss.

Aunt Linda meant a great deal to me. I remember when Sparks tv was next to a bakery and she would take my brother and I over and bought us Gingerbread cookies. I still look for a bakery every Christmas that sells them. I have many fond memories of going for walks in the Pasture and going swimming in the pool. Our family gatherings every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter are very special memories to me. I don’t think I have ever seen so much food in one place... lol
She will be missed and I’m so sorry for your loss.
