Oh Gary,

There are no words . . .

She was the grandest lady of them all. She touched so many people right where they were at.

Our loss is Heaven’s gain and she is completely healthy and whole. It doesn’t diminish our pain in losing her.

Praying comfort and peace during these difficult hours and days ahead to surround you and your family.

Sending all my Love . . .

Linda, lady of great faith and her love for the Lord. An inspiration to all, you persevered through life beyond measure, way beyond what any of us could of endured. Mother of the faith you taught many of us so well, words of inspiration, faith walk, and to step up in time of need for others. You made us feel at home with hospitality, your delicious cooking, and the beautiful table spread that was set before us. With your hands you made us beautiful things out of love. I will miss your laughter and your smile. Till we meet again Linda, I love you Lady. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family.
