I have too many memories of Aunt Linda so I am sharing whom she was to me and what her role in my life meant to me. When I was a child and even in my young teen years, she was a 2nd Mom to me. Every other weekend I was in her home. My Mother and my Aunt kept their children close so we were always together. Throughout the years lives go in different directions due to raising our own family but Aunt Linda always had a special place in my heart. All of us kids loved when we were all together and our Mothers made sure that we were. Easter was a special time for us because while they made all the chocolate candies for our Easter baskets we were sent to the movies to stay out of their hair. One of my favorite times with her was when my Aunt Linda and Uncle Jimmy (her brother) drove down to Virginia to visit my sister. There was never a dull moment the whole weekend trip. I will cherish every moment that I have shared with her throughout the years but most of all I will always hear her laugh. It is one of a kind and very infectious. I will always miss you, Aunt Linda. Love, your niece Susie
