I have so many fond memories of being on the farm with her and Junior. When I was little, my grandmother Nannie Gilvin, would take me out to the farm to spend a night or to pick blackberrries. For a child, there was no more fun place to be than that farm.
My deepest sympathies to Junior, Sandy, Janet, Tommy and their families.
Rest in peace.
