Linda & I were baptized together at First Baptist Church in Hobbs, NM when we were 22 yrs old.
When visiting in Hobbs, her oldest daughter, Shelley, told my daughter, Amy, there was no Santa Claus.
She was horrified..........i told her it was ok, she had to find out sooner or later!!

We've shared FB messages over the last years to keep in touch. We had many long talks over FB, shared
about our grandkids, our x husbands & our lives.

I was so happy when she got her kidney transplant as my youngest daughter who is now 41 got a kidney/pancreas transplant 10 yrs ago. My daughter had Type 1 diabetes since the age of 8 which was not the case for Linda. I wished her well.............

I will always remember her as a friend & confidante. Rest in peace Linda, I know you are now with your
sister who I know you missed so much. We had a very good talk about how much our sisters meant to us.
