As a niece of Uncle Hubert and Aunt Maxine, I enjoyed visiting them on their farm.  Fond memories of playing in the barn outback and climbing up to the loft looking out over the cows.  Aunt Maxine sure knew how to prepare a delicious meal.  Loved her baked beans and persimmon pudding.  Time spent with Glendon and Gene showing us around the farm.  For a girl who grew up at Fort Knox, this was a new world for me.   I remember Uncle Herbert's fondness for new cars and the Cincinnati Reds. My husband took a liking to him as well.  Larry bought him a CR baseball cap for me to give him when Mother, Dwight, and I went to see him years ago.  Daddy(Edison) and you looked so much alike.  The Kendall reunions were special times for all.  A great bond among so many siblings.  I miss those days being with Kendall family.  Now only Aunt Maxine Dillard lives.  May you RIP.  Gene, I'm sorry for your loss.
