I remember aunt Linda from when i a child. She was so cool. She could make a joke out of thin air. You will be missed aunt Linda.

I'm so sorry for your loss, All of you are in my thoughts at this sad time. Linda was such a strong presence in each of your lives and loved each of you dearly. When you lose your mother you never quit missing her and find your family no longer has the glue that held you together. She would have fought the world for each of you and I know this from first hand experience lol, and I know that she would want you to do the same for each other. She is no longer in pain, I know that doesn't make the loss any less painful for each of you. Just know you all are in my prayers.
