I am proud to call her my friend. She was always so full of life and had no problem telling you how it was. She was lite in my world and helped me to follow my true direction. She was always a source of comfort and humor, even when I had to change the bandage on her bottom from a heating pad burn. I will always remember her and miss her greatly. Be at peace Linda and know you where greatly loved. My condolences to your family.

When we were kids, Linda wanted to be a hairdresser. She said she wanted to cut my hair for "practice." Oh boy...I had real long hair, and when she was done "practicing," I had a chopped up butch haircut. My dad was so mad at both of us. Ha! Good thing hair grows back, but it took forever. I think I even have a photo of it, but it's not handy at present.

Trina and family,
I can’t begin to express how deeply sorry I am over the loss of your mom. She was such a sweet, funny lady and I know she’ll be missed dearly. You’re in my prayers.
