Dear beloved children of Linda,
Toms and I want to sincerely say how sorry we were to hear about your mom's passing.
When we were all working at K-mart we became so close. Your mom played a big part in me and Toms getting together. For that we were so grateful. The four of us had some good times working at K-mart.
It's hard to believe that they are gone and we're still here. I remember your mom saying to me when we would talk on the phone ''love each other, hug each other and laugh together because you never know when it will be your last''.
I still can't believe she's gone but I know she is with the loves of her life and she is happy. I can see her smiling now.
After Gene passed, you children were her rock. She was very blessed to have children who were so good to her and loved her more than words can say.
We will miss her dearly as I know you all will. Your mom was a great woman and so loving and thoughtful. She will live on in our memories.
We look forward to seeing all of you when you have services for Gene and your mom perhaps in the spring Laura thought.
Love each other, hug each other and through this sadness l pray you will find time to laugh.
All our love,
Irms and Toms (as your mom always called us)
