    No words can express what it feels like to lose a mother who you have cared for. When we were younger they cared for us, when they got older and needed help we took care of them. Its a wonderful privilege to be able to do that for the one who brought us into the world. I can understand the pain, sadness and great loss but someday we will see our mothers again without any pain.

    Really really loved Linda’s smile and she was such a great friend and sister to me. Her stories and best of all her faith really really encouraged me ! Before I moved away she and her daughters let me drink coffee and eat and laugh our selves silly! I will see her again and best of all her fine example of love and endurance we all can learn from♥❤🌼

    Condolences to all the family. Linda was a very special lady and dearly loved. We will miss her. So glad her children brought her to Spring Mill to visit when we were there.
