Linda your mom was such an inspiration to so many people and has been missed these years she could not attend. I have so many memories of her and mom together but the funniest one I have is when they took us to Lynchburg shopping and we laughed and carried on in the back of the car. I hope you find peace in the love that others share. If you need anything just give me a yell.
