I want to send my deepest condolences to your family at this very difficult time. Ive known Linda now for many years and although we havent seen alot of each other the last number of years, the news of her passing saddened me greatly. She was an amazing lady with a kind heart. My heart goes out to everyone, her kids, her grandkids and Tommmy. I had just seen her about a month ago and we had talked about getting together for supper. Im sorry we never got to do that. Im not able to make the service today but I do want the family to know you are all in my thoughts. Rest in Peace Linda, may the angels welcome you with open arms.
