How I will miss these cute neighbors of mine! For years Mingo would come over when I was out mowing the lawn and we would visit about just about everything. I enjoyed our friendship so much. He even hobbled over with his cane after his stroke. (That worried me some, but I loved it!) He was my buddy. This fall I realized that next summer there would be no visits with Mingo and it broke my heart.

And Jodene was such fun to talk to! She was so talented and feisty like my own momma. She was funny and not afraid to say whatever came to her mind. I remember seeing some of her painting projects and I was so impressed! One day she was out on the garden (after she lost part of her leg) making signs for the garden with a wood burner. The statues she made to burn for summer solstice were masterpieces! She could do so many things. She thought her chickens were the smartest animals on earth! I didn't dare disagree, but I thought it was adorable.

These two were quite the pair! I loved their bantering. I'm so thankful for Randy and how he cared for them! I know it must have been hard and exhausting, but he honored them so well and made sure they were watched over. They talked about their sons a LOT!

That they got to leave the same day is just a beautiful thing. I will sorely miss them. They were so very good to me.
