I don't know how many times I look back on my dear departed friend and former Tennessee Agriculture Extension Agent Marilyn Geraldson with a smile on my face, remembering hers.
I'll never forget her infectious laugh and the many times we sat out on her back porch joking and laughing and, of course, talking about food. It's hard to believe she's been gone for almost three years now. She had one of the most remarkable senses of humor I've ever known and was such a good cook. Food and laughter are gifts from God, as is friendship.
As I said, I think of her often, but it's especially true this time of year when peaches are ripe and ready to eat.
