Miss Linda was the rock of my wife's Lake's (Sherry Lynn) life. Always the constant reminder of G-ds ever abiding love. She was always there with an encouraging word. It seems that there are that select few who feel and share G-ds love with every breath they take every word they speak and every thought they have. Linda was all of that and so much more. As for me I am a better person, a better husband, a better father than I every thought I could be because of the love, encouragement and constant prayers of Miss Linda. She was G-ds angel on earth and is now by his side in the sky's of the north giving him the encouraging words and warm hugs she so eagerly shared so freely with us. Since I did not see any pictures of my wife in the photo's at the the service I thought I would share one of Lind at Andrew wedding. She was always front and center in the lives of all those she knew and loved. We will miss you.
