We received sad news yesterday that Linda “Sparky” Mortimer passed away early Monday morning. We met Sparky on the Story Tour in Syracuse at her restaurant, “Sparky Town,” where she wouldn’t let us three hungry guys leave without being full. We only spent about an hour with her, collecting her story and eating, but it was more than enough time to realize how wonderful of a person she was. Our thoughts are with all of her friends and the Syracuse community. Here’s Sparky’s story.
