Dear Marisa, Jessica, Al and Family,
We are deeply saddened by Linda's passing. I know how close the three of you were, like the three musketeers. To lose your Mom is devastating, but she will be in your hearts forever .
She was a good friend to us, and she will never be forgotten. She had a wonderful family and eight special grandchildren. You all have to be strong for each other because that is what she would want. She is looking down on you all with love and pride. Each one of you now have a new angel sitting on your shoulders, to guide and protect you! And always remember that she is in peace .
Love to all of you, Lynda and Denny
Linda, you lived a wonderful life, raised two wonderful daughters, grandmother to eight grandchildren, and a wonderful husband Al, all who loved you so deeply. Words can't describe the void that has been left behind. Your fight is now over, comfort is found now knowing that you are at peace, and with your family in heaven. You are one of the strongest woman I know and you proved that right to your final days. I will miss you greatly, your crazy stories and interactions, your love, your presence. You will continue to live with us, in memories, stories, and through all of us for who have taken a piece of you into our hearts forever. I love you and I miss you dearly. Please go with god now, we know you will be watching over us.
To my wife Marisa, I cannot express the deep sorrow I feel for you. This journey has not been easy by any means, you were by her side every step of the way and I am so proud of you and greatly admire the strength you have. Your mom loves you very much and she knows how much you love her. I will miss hearing about your interesting shopping adventures for sure! I love you with all my heart.
Adam and Marisa and family our deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear mother and grandmother! May she finally Rest In Peace! Love Aunt Char and uncle Bill
