Lynette & Her Girls


Lynette is also my first cousin and Nancy's sister.  As kids we did something together almost every week during the summer.  It may have been a picnic at January Wabash Park, or Forest Park with a trip to the St. Louis Zoo.  We laugh today about those lunches of ham salad sandwiches (that were really bologna salad sandwiches) and watered down koolaid.   

At least once every summer we drove down to see our Aunt Imogene who lived in Bloomsdale, MO.  As soon as we got their, Aunt Imogene would catch a chicken &  chop off it's head.  Chickens really do run around with their head.  SHe would fry the chicken for our lunch.  Our mom's would be yelling at us stay out of the creek as we headed straight to it.  First we'd wade barefoot, then we'd roll up our pant legs to our knees and go in a little deeper and then what the heck, on in we went clothes and all.  It was so much fun.  Good thing I had brothers to pull off the leaches.

The picture of Lynette was taken at a family birthday celebration we had for the March birthdays last year.  Dave bought her three balloons that combined, added up to her age.  Take a guess what the 3rd balloon said.


Dawn is married to Lynette's son, Nathan.  They are an Air Force family with 4 children.  Nathan and Dawn have just returned from a mission trip to Haiti.


Arianna is Dawn's daughter who is becoming quite the young lady.  I have not spent any time with Arianna but I get to see pictures and hear stories from her very proud Grandma.

 Jennifer G

Jennifer is Lynette's daughter-in-law and is a sweet southern belle.  She moved from Natchez, MS to St. Louis when she and Scotty married, leaving her home and family. Of course It took all of 2 seconds for her to become a part of our family.  I am so proud of her.  She was recently named Nurse of the Year for SSM Healthcare and promoted to Nurse Manager on the telemetry floor at St. Joseph's Hospital.
