There really are no words to explain what Linda means to our family. For my parents, who are devastated, there was always a special bond. But that bond didn't stop there. Linda was able to be part of our lives even given the distance. When we saw her she really wanted to know how things were going, didn't do that courtesy question, she really wanted to know and really cared.

Jackson I pray you remember her and how much she adores you. Alyssa, I hope you always feel her with you because you were someone she prayed for her whole adult life and I know she will always be watching over you. And Marc, thank you for giving her the love she deserved and for being there for her. I pray you all find peace in this, I pray we all do because we truly all lost her way too soon. All our love always.
