I loved Linda. My favorite memory of her was when I would go over to y’alls house and she would always give me that look when I asked if you guys were home. She would always give me a little grin after she said come in. Sometimes I wondered if she was upset but I really knew she wasn’t. She loved you boys and Roy and I know you will truly miss her. You guys did a great job and she looked beautiful. Thinking of you always. ❤️❤️

Mom,

This is probably your favorite item. If there is anything that you definitely want to keep it was what you referred to as “MY HAND,” I remember you saying, “Now I’m not ever getting rid of my hand.” I am placing a photo of it and I will cherish it forever as I am never getting rid of it! I will hold “YOUR HAND” forever!

Love you,

Your Son,

Jerry

Mom,

Sitting at home going thru some of the cards and pictures we shared with each other. Found the card where I told you the name of my first child, “Amanda Kanae Mabe” in which I had told you on your Birthday! What a beautiful card I had given you and you kept it all these years; that was how you kept things dear to your heart in a safe place. I am placing a photo of the card to be with you. I will hold this card tight forever as you did all these years!

I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!

Your Loving Son,

Jerry
