My aunt Linda was a pillar of strength. She was nurturing and oh so loving. She hugged for hours if you’d let her. She had a full life filled with joy from her daughters, grandchildren and the rest of her family. She was so wise and could talk for hours. Her stories were many and laughing I think was her secret to a long life. I will miss your funny sense of humor and your birthday messages. And now you can rejoice with your heavenly family. I will always remember you and keep you in my heart.
