We Love you Linda

This has been a sad week at our house. A very good friend of the family Linda Sue died this week suddenly. She was one of my mom's very best friends. She was one of the strongest people I have ever met in my life. She had so many helath problems, diabetes, leg amputee, lost all of her hair but she was always smiling and laughing. She did not have any children of her own and she lived her life through her friends kids. She was like a second mother to me. I do not remember a time when she was not in my life. I could call her at talk to her about anything and she would not tell my mom which was very good when I was younger.
I grew up knowing and loving Linda and so did Brookster. Brooskster loved her so much. She did not want to go the funeral or the funeral home to see her body. She wanted to remember her the way she last saw her. I respected her wishes and she stayed home. I know that I am rambling tonight but I just needed to get this all out.

We love you Linda and I know that I will see you again in Heaven. Take care of Shag and Papa.

    Remembering her in spirit, recalling memories, talking about funny things she said, etc. will allow her to live forever in your hearts.
