We didn't get to visit much. Then again, what adult wants to chit chat with a child or play Barbies. You had four of your own kids to care for and entertain. Seriously, I absolutely looked forward to coming over to your house when we made it back to Missouri. Your home was so well kept and there was always something good in the oven. I remember when you and Uncle Bob would have little disagreements. It was good natured pickin'. I wish I would have taken more time to sit with you, watch T.V., maybe play cards, or plain talk. Maybe had I been more mature. I love you Aunt Linda and you will always hold a piece of my heart. Tell everybody I said, "Hey!" and I'll see y'all after a while.
