I was saddened to read of Linda's passing. She was such a joy to know. My sympathy to the whole family. She was your stronghold.

What a wonderful lady. I had mentioned to Kristy how on the day of her wedding, I could not get the hairpiece on my head and showed up at Kristy's frazzled and close to tears. Her mom, in about 35 seconds, managed to make the hair piece look awesome AND it stayed on my head. Kristy said that her mom could fix everything. Kristy is right. Our thoughts and prayers for the whole family.

Mr. Wrighton, Kristy, Eddie and Charlie,

I have so many memories of being around your Mom and your family when I was younger. She had such an infectious laugh! My most recent memory is of her doing the alterations on my wedding dress. There was no one better at her craft than her. She was a perfectionist in every sense of the word when it came to sewing. I will always remember her laugh and her sense of humor. I am so very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time.

So sorry for your loss. I remember living next to you on Drive-in Lane.
Linda and I talked almost daily about our kids, etc. She was like a big sister to me and we had a lot of laughs. I remember those times fondly.

Well it seems like it was awefuly short but we had some really good times and we had some times that really suck. I think you picked a bad time to check out but I know where you are and will see you one day so don't go telling Ma any stories about how I did it and you don't know anything about it. You know I love you and life has been a hell of a ride, will miss you so much. Your sister in crime Dinah
