Would like to be with you tomorrow. Lynn did so much for us in the last year. Will thank him from now on. I know he is with Tammy, Gina, Nana, and Da now. And I know his mom is there also. That is quite a reunion. Love you and Deb, and all your family. Teeyry

Debbie and Aunt Anita,

I am writing you both to tell you how sorry I am to hear of Uncle Lyndal's passing. I also want to share what has always been in my heart about our family.

Christmas before last, my granddaughters Josie, Frankie, Ricki were in the backyard fusing about whose turn it was on a swing I had hung for them. It aggravated me to hear them acting hateful toward each other. So I told them how great my cousins were and how I always wanted to see them. Then I told them about arriving at the cabin in the middle of a snow storm one Christmas. When we arrived Nana had a horse hitched to a Sleigh. It even had Jingle Bells on it. She was ready to give all of us a ride. Josie's eyes widened and she said: Man she must have been the best grandma in the world. I didn't even have to think about that I just answered : Yes she was.

When I look back at my life. The time our family was together at the cabin or the farm in Wichita are the happiest times of my childhood. Bim, Katie and I have always felt the same about that. When we gather at Mom and Dads one of us will tell a story about something that happened then. Which starts everyone sharing stories that were funny or important to us.

Lyndal really stood out to me. I would see him get out of the car clean shaven, well groomed and in a suit. My impression was he must be the boss or the smartest man where he worked. Then within minutes of arriving he would emerge from the cabin in blue jeans a regular shirt and a 22 rifle or a fishing pole in his hands. He would head to the woods or the river then reappear with a stringer of fish or some squirrels. It seemed to me that the cabin turned him back into an Arkansas boy. He was always kind to me and would explain what he was doing when cleaning his game. He told me once that some people cook squirrel brains in there scrambled eggs. The attention he paid to me alone made him great in my eyes. As I grew older I heard stories about him and his brothers and sister an
