I am writing this on behalf of my mother Violet Carpenter Tincher, her husband Don and her children Paula Mullin and Mike Tincher.
Your mother and your aunt Lorene and my mother Violet grew up together and were the best of friends.Your mother and aunt often ate and stayed nights at the residence of Osman and Lola Carpenter on N.E. 9th St. in Linton.
Over the years, Mom has told us of many childhood memories of the 3 of them playing kick the can, 4th of July gatherings at the Carpenter household, playing under the street light, and playing in high water at the corner. There are so many memories it would take so many pages to tell of them.
I have a fond memory of your mother and Carl. In about 1971, Dad, Carl and I went ice fishing. Mom and Irene spent a big part of the day probably talking of memories. The temperature was about 0 to - 10 degrees. I recall this day as if it was last week because we caught over 40 bluegills. As we caught the fish and put them on the ice they would freeze quickly. Later that evening when we arrived home we put the fish in the kitchen sink. Before we knew it the fish came back to life because they were really not dead but just frozen. Many of the fish started splashing water all over the fish and Mom became very upset at Dad and me. I often wondered if Carl had the same problem.
We are very saddened of the loss of your mother. Mom loved Irene and Lorene like they were her own sisters. Our prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
