I can remember so many summers biking from Grandma Anne's to see Gordy and Margaret. ALWAYS a highlight of my summers. I was always greeted with fresh baked cookies, smile and of course a really, really big hug. I will always treasure our visits and talks.

Linda, Pat & boys...Margaret was a huge part of my childhood. Her farm was a special place for us as well. We looked forward to when she and Gordy would come home each spring, thrilled to see Margaret drive in with her gallon jugs for the water until the well got going...kitten hunts...picking eggs...picking raspberries...getting scolded for riding my bike to get the mail and visiting, eating cookies and bothering Margaret. Every single summer of my life I have had visiting Margaret on the agenda. I love how she always cats and kittens every summer of her life. Margaret will be forever loved and missed...and love that Lena gets her due recognition.
