Dear Momma,

I love you so much. I remember you drove a long way to get me and bring me home. You made sure I only ate certain food because I can sick easily. I loved snuggling with you in your chair watching TV and crawling under the covers down near your toes at night.

You took me to see Miss Georgia often so I always looked good and manly! You bought me a special car seat so I could look out the window and boy did you take me for drives. AND! you bought me a blue stroller, not one of those sissy pink ones, because I'm a man and you wanted everyone to know it! Oh, the rides in that stroller with the wind in my face and the sun on my head! You were so proud of me.

I love you,
Bentley

Amy, Scott and Family,

My heart is broken to learn of Linda's passing....We got to be great friends at Oakland Avenue Church. I just wish I had gotten to be her friend alot sooner, just knowing her and sitting with her at church was a blessing.. I am sorry that we lost touch before her death even if it was just a brief text to see how each other was doing...She always told me how happy she was that she moved to be closer to you and Scott so she could spend more time with you Amy....

I will miss my friend always.
With deepest sympathy to you and your family during this difficult time of sorrow...
