I remember visiting and spending time with my cousins as I grew up. As a family we would make the trip from Baton Rouge to Pineville and spend the day. I enjoyed running down the hill and just having fun. Last year when my sister said she was going to visit Nancy I was incllined not to go because I had my grandchildren that day. Well needless to say I changed my mind and we went. I am so glad I got to spend time with my cousins last year. I remember them pulling out a picture of Grandma Bankston and commenting on how much I looked like her. My prayers are with my family during this time.

Growing up we would go to Aunt Estelle's house and spend time with family. Just got to see him last year on a visit to Nancy. Burt will be missed.
