  1. Linda Kay so truly sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs.

  2. As children we enjoyed many fun days together with Ferrel as Walter, Jerry and I spent the Summers with Papa and Mama Minter outside of Crockett. Then we all went our separate ways, lived our own lives and failed to stay in touch. However, those wonderful childhood memories, which can never be replaced, are still fresh in my mind.

    Cousin Richard Minter
