Dear aunt linda,
Rest in paradise, I miss you more than anything!
Just remembering the times when I would come over and you would always tell me you wish me and you can just go shopping, or all the stories you would tell me about when we were younger and they were just funny stories, and when we would turn on the music and you would start dancing to the Justin Bieber music. Such good times we had. Even though you were having such a hard time you would never let it get in the way. I know you up in heaven now not in pain no more and probably shopping and planning a vacation that you deserve. Just the good old times we had. ❤️ Rest In Peace aunt linda I miss you so much and love you!❤️❤️

So many memories with you great America, shopping, sleep overs when I was younger. I use to love going go to your house we had fun. Holidays waiting for you to come over and your beautifully wrapped gifts. One memory really sticks out is going to the lake ( you actually told kids this story not to long ago) me not believing you can only float and I dragged you out in lake on a raft but I did bring you back to shore. How great you were with my kids and how much they love you. You will greatly be missed by so many I love you so much ~Nikki

Linda, First time meeting..... Us walking together behind the other girls at night down 48th & Roosevelt at Me and Marcia's P.J. party with the Calumet girls. Sherry Riddle dropping her gold necklace through the floor boards.
You giving me a 16th birthday present of stackable lipstick/eyeshadow. .... Spending many wonderful days up in your beautiful bedroom on 41st. I would sit by your make-up table by the window, the heavenly breezes flowing in. Your Mother, Francis was an Angle on Earth. She made us the best coffee ever. I will never forget her Joyous laughter.... Me, You, Marcia and Georgie going to U.P. Michigan with Frank and Leanne to Boyne Highlands for New Years Eve where you first learn to ski. We laughed so hard when we were trying to show you how to get up after you fell. It was so darn funny, I couldn't help it..... Me, You and Georgie going to the Clown Festival in Michigan City grilling pork shops on the grass. ....Me, You, Marcia and George going to Switzerland, sking the Swiss Alps. Going to Italy for that fantastic dinner. Going to Copenhagen,, Dennmark. The Danish rolls outstanding. Years later going to San Francisco and Lake Tahoe to ski. You turned into a great skier.. All the fun when you and Marcia had that apartment together on Ridge Rd & Broadway......You taking me to Las Vegas where I stood over you while you were gambling finally say, "Here Connie is some money, go buy rolls of nickels and play slots..... You inviting me and Georgie to Danny's for Christmas Eve to spend with all your family after George died a month earlier 1982. That was the last Christmas Georgie had before his accident..... So many great memories we shared together. Linda, you made my life so full of happy times. Your support to me through good times and bad. I will always Love you. Last night I caught the last part of movie Grease singing "We will always be together" "We will always be together" and Linda, We were always together. 58 years. Connie
