Linda, Boy I just can't explain how different Christmas is without you.. We sure miss you dearly. The boys are growing so fast and Jordan is becoming more like you every day. I know you would be proud of how Mark and Tonya have pulled together to get thru all of this.

I talked to Paula and she was telling me about how you two would have gotten together this week, had lunch and exchanged gifts. She tells me she is doing fine but I know that this is a tough time of the year without you here.

I just wanted to say how much we all love and miss you and Tony.

Merry Christmas

Linda,

It still doesn't seem real… Thanksgiving is upon us and you won't be here to share it with us. I know you and Tony's spirit will be with us as we celebrate Thanksgiving with Mark and the kids at your house.

I will miss your cooking; I will miss the time we all spent together. Tonya still has her moments and she still talks to you every night but I know the next couple of months are going to be especially hard on her. Tonya and you spent so much time during the Holidays together. I will try to keep her together during this time.

We all miss you and it been hard not having you here but we all understand that you are where you want to be.

Linda you were one of a kind and I will always be proud to say you were my Mother-in-Law.

We love you so much,

Dan
