This Blog Is Dedicated To The Memory Of My Beloved Sister, Lynn
This is a picture of my sister, Lynn, taken not long before she passed away in 2007. Because she lived far away in Montana and had become very ill, she was not able to visit Mississippi so I created this as a private blog in 2006 just for her to see what I was doing and growing in my garden down here. Today is Lynn's birthday and she would have been 68 years old. She was my only sister and was a close friend all my life. She was only 18 months older than me. I miss her dearly but I know she is in a better place now free from all her years of pain and suffering. This little orphan deer that my father found in the woods about 1946 became our pet and we named him Bambi. We raised him on bottled milk and he was much fun to play with. When he grew up he answered the "call of the wild" and voluntarily returned to the woods where he was born. During our childhood on our family farm we always had many pets like this litter of puppies. These old faded black and white photos are over 60 years old, but the happy memories I shared with Lynn are as fresh as yesterday. How time flies!
