Joe, Chris, Tommy and Jason nothing I write here could make a dent in how bad you feel. Like the previous lady my heart hurts too. One thing I do know-she no longer uses a stupid walker but skips and probably occasionally does cartwheels.

Dear Joe and family,

Linda was one of the best people I've known and I am so sorry she has passed. She was support to me when I needed it most. I am so sorry I cannot make it to her funeral as I am not in town, but please know I am thinking of you all at this time. I will never forget her love for you Joe and her family. She will be most missed.
