Much of our strength came from the knowledge and respect you poured into our lives. You built a bridge of faith between your life and ours. You taught us to face a real world remembering to be strong and yet gentle. Your service to life was a great example and we are proud you are our mother. I love you Mama, and will miss you always, Linda.
