"From left to right, its my brother (Chris), my dad (Ken/Kenneth), me in the back, my mom in the pink shirt (Rose Linton) and my oldest brother on the right (Scott). My mom was born in Ohio, but lived in Indiana for her beginning life and she met my dad, who lived in Ohio, in a bar, which turned out to be an amazing find. My moms parents worked in their bakery, owned a restaurant called Christina's in Sunman, Indiana and were wonderful parents (grandparents). Taught my mom to be tough and loving. My moms favorite dishes she loves to cook are basically anything. We have a tradition where we make homemade peanut brittle and my dad and mom did that every year at Christmas. She just loves cooking in general, keeps her busy and she always makes the recipes in cook books ten times better. She loves gardening and spending time with her family. All around, she's my best friend and has been a rock since my dad passed away last year March."
