Have very fond memories of
sassy "Twinks". She took a big role in my two sons life as an adopted Grandmother. She always kept them in line as young adult men. She will be greatly missed but NEVER forgotten. I will always cherish those moments with her and her family on the farm. Keep her family in my prayers....
