Miss Mint

   Mrs. Mint Sandlin was 91 years young when she left her body behind. She was married according to the laminated bookmark filled with her funeral service information that I found in a yard sale bible. She was affectionately known by those who loved her as "Miss Mint". Born in the state of Kentucky in 1912, she worked as a cook for a local school and was a member in good standing of the Baptist church. She raised four sons, four daughters and 3 stepchildren.Thats a lot of mouths to feed not to mention all the school children she cooked for. This is all I know of Miss Mint but I wonder, almost daily, what her life was like with a name like Miss Mint. It just tickles the lips saying it!  I can just imagine the children filing through the cafeteria line exclaiming "Miss Mint! Miss Mint!" It makes me smile. RIP Miss Mint.
