Remembering Jinny Scott
On this day three years ago one of my dearest friends, Jinny (Atkins) Scott, passed away. Jinny and I met at a Strafford County Genealogical Society meeting in Dover, New Hampshire in 2004. We became instant friends, sharing many wonderful times over lunch and in genealogical research. We were also distant cousins, sharing a genealogical link through the Buzzell family. She was unfailingly kind, generous, and positive, and my spirits were always lifted in her company. She was the rarest of gifts: a true friend and a kindred spirit. I was very blessed to be her friend, and I still miss her greatly.
