Thank you Kenneth for sharing so bravely, beautifully and compassionately. I cared for my mother at our home for seven plus years. She died six weeks before Linda in 1998, age 90. We certainly remember your youthful, bubbly, attractive, Wendy. You have been greatly blessed by a union with this Brit-voiced girl I remember so fondly!
God blessed you with so many grands and great grands. The best treasures, ever!
Salty is unable to make the trip up to her funeral on Monday, but we do send praises of joy and happiness for her release from sickness and her new whole self in God’s presence. We will meet her again in Heaven!
