    I will always remember the laughs we had during the holidays. Linda always made everything so fun and she always made me feel so welcome into her family. Her children are so beloved and my heros in this truly hard time. We will always miss you LInda and we will always hold you so close to our heart. You are one of the dear ones.

    I will continue to share my thoughts, etc. Just know I am with you my children and Cindy – you know you mean everything to us and our kids. Hold them close, until we can all be together and hold all of us together again.

    God will watch over us. God is with us. And remember always, for us Jesus, too wept.

    These last five years I have always looked forward to seeing Linda and Cindy at Emma’s shows. Both always welcomed me and it was wonderful to feel a part of the loving supportive family there for Emma.

    Linda truly showed love for all of her family and was proud of them. I remember many times she would say how proud of them she was because they were beautiful inside and that that was what mattered most. She is right and each one of them is!

    I have seldom seen such love and support completely for each other as this amazing family has shown. It’s been a blessing to know Linda, even with the heartbreak of losing her so young I wouldn’t trade being able to know her these past five years for anything.

    Thank you for being an inspiration to us all!

    I have been a guest in Cindy & Linda’s home many times. I was always made to feel so welcome, almost like a part of the family.

    Linda was always so organized and had a plan for her life, and always put a positive spin on whatever life presented her with. I know that she instilled love and many other good qualities to her children which will help them throughout their lives. I will always picture her laughing when I think of her.

    Linda will be missed by many, I know, and by me. May God bless and keep her loved ones and May you always keep Linda’s memory alive in your hearts and minds.

    I miss you so much mom. You were/are such a huge part of who I have become. I will carry everything you taught me in my heart, whenever I wonder “what would my moms advice be?” I will just close my eyes and hear your voice guiding me to the right path. You would be so proud of Cindy and this family, we are leaning on each other and being each others support whenever it is needed. I love you and I will see you un my dreams.

    Dear Linda, Wherever you are, I hope you remember me kindly as I do you. You were always encouraging and a defender of your family members and in my case welcoming to a friend. I felt very comfortable with you and Cindy, I’m happy to have known you. There is a prayer in my heart for you, May you find peace.

    Linda, you were/are such an amazing woman. I am so lucky to have met you and you had such an impact on my life. I’ve known you and your family for years now, you always made me feel like another family member. I was actually reminded about a week ago about how Kyle and I went searching for a diet soda from a fountain for you when there was a power outage. We drove all the way to Auburn to get you one. It was really funny at the time but now looking back, it was our way of showing we’d do anything for you. I speak for many when I say that you are loved and missed very much. May you find peace and thank you so much for being a part of my life. I love you.

    Love always,

    Yesterday I wrote about my mom and ended it with “see you in my dreams” and lucky for me I had a dream about my mom. I got a hug and an “I miss you” thanks for the dream hug mom, I really really needed it. Love you xoxoxxo
