So sorry for the loss of a great woman. I know that she had to have been a pretty wonderful woman because of all of her family members that I have grown to know. Truly an amazing family that has been through so much. Your strength is inspiring and I am glad to know you.

Our thoughts are with the entire family at this difficult time. Especially Linda, who is a very special woman to me and my family. We love you.
