  3. Linda and family, Please accept our heartfelt and deepest sympathy on the passing of your mother. I know for certain that we never truly lose the people we love. She will continue to be a huge part of who we are and will be. Also, I have come to realize that death brings a heartache that no one can heal; it is going to take time. I find much comfort in knowing that my life has been enriched just by knowing your mother and seeing her sweet smile every time I came to the house. She was a wonderful person. She is going to be truly missed by all who ever had the pleasure of knowing her. The following poem I found comfort in and hope that it helps you all as well. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put his loving arms around you and whispered “come to me”. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days to come. We love you, Donna, Randy and Family

  4. Linda and family, Our heartfelt sympathy to your whole family duing this very difficult time. I’m so glad her last few weeks she was not in pain, and that she was surrounded by the love and support of her children. Your Mom was a strong woman who put up a great fight against this horrible disease, and she is now at peace and in God’s loving hands. You all have great memories of your Mom and she will forever be the bond that holds you all together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Love, Kim, Dave & Boys

  9. Bill I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I remember her oh so well and always walking up and down Plum Street either coming from Tiny Tots or going to Tiny Tots. And of course seeing her out in the backyard with all you kids. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. Patty Payne 610 Plum Street

  10. Dear Linda and Family, I was saddened to hear about your loss. Your Mom was such a lovely lady and seemed to always have a smile for everyone. She will truly be missed. May God be with you in this time of sorrow–comforting you, guiding you and sending you warm reminders of His love. Grief never ends, but it changes. It is a passage, not a place to stay. The sense of loss must give way if we are to value the life that was lived. God bless and stay strong.
