I treasure the things you gave me like encouragement, knowledge and pride in self. You really were an amazing aunt. I love you and your kids sooo very much. I know they will be well, simply because of you.

Dear Jim and Family,
Sister Kate and I were deeply saddened to hear of Linda's passing. She certainly fought the good fight and now has finished her course. She is at peace and free of suffering. Hope Rural School was a place she loved and where she taught 4th Grade for 10 years. My fondest memories are of her patriotic assemblies where she and her class honored veterans in a special way. Linda also made the 4th graders prepare to be 5th Grade Hope Ambassadors by a year-long internship of responsibility, community and service.
Linda, may the angels lead you into paradise and may our loving God embrace you. Keep watch over your loving family and continue to hold Hope Rural School close to your heart.
With much love and deepest sympathy,
Sister Mary Dooley, SSND
