Be thankful for the time you had, those experiences and memories will last you a lifetime. Virtual hugs to all of you, Mark, Eric, David, Lynne and Barb Lawton

Dear John,Kathy,Janice and Susan and families ,Sending my deepest sympathy to you.Lots of memories from the pickle days on.Linda was always so welcoming.Treasure all your family times. Cheryl and Alex Clark

Who the hell is Davey Ding? Well, that is what my dear Aunt Linda called me. I had the good fortune to spend a lot of time with Auntie. We worked hard together in the pickle world for many wonderful years. The memories of that special time are flooding back as I write this. She and dear uncle were wonderful bosses and role models to young Davey. I look back and remember laughing every day in all 3 barns over the years. I was fortunate enough to continue in a career where I got to laugh every day (well...sometimes swear using words that dear uncle taught me). I admire the willpower that she had to quit smoking many years ago. That must have been very difficult, but my strong aunt pushed through it. I will always cherish my years spent with Aunt Linda and Uncle John. My condolences to the Kacho, Jake and Badger, whom I was fortunate enough to get to spend much time all those years ago. Long live the memories of my dear Aunt Linda. Davey Ding
