|Let the memory of Linda be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Linda Daughtery-Dooley, 70, born on April 20, 1937 and passed away on February 11, 2008. We were BLESSED the Lord gave her to us.....the MOST outspoken, honest, and strongest woman we've ever known!! FOREVER MISSED is exactly what she is....no one can fill her lil shoes!!
"I can always tell when it's getting close to the day of your passing. I already think of you every day but as the day gets closer I find myself feeling more and more depressed. I miss you so much!!!!"
"Today would've been one of your birthdays.....you know why I say this but for those of you who don't know here's the story. My grandmother came from a time when birth certificates weren't something you needed for everything you do and didn't have a driver license until she was in her late 20's, therefore she didn't even apply for her birth record until this time. It took quite some time for her record to be located and when it was she found that her birth day of record was April 20th. However, her mother, my great grandma Shannon said her birthday was April 22nd and the record was wrong, stating that SHE should know...afterall, she was there ;) So now it's a running joke every year as to which day we choose to celebrate Grandma Linda's birthday on. Now that this is out of the way....back to what I want to say to Grandma....
I wish you were here. I'm going thru so much right now and YOU are one person, aside from my uncle Jamie, who gives good advice that's not always what I want to hear. I miss so much about you that I find myself wishing to hear your voice just one more time....and help me ease some of the pain I feel every day! I didn't realize just how much you helped me and how much I needed you until you were gone. I wish I would've asked you more about our family history. I loved to hear you tell the stories and I would've learned more about our family. I wish you could see my little brother now, you would be proud of him, Grandmda, the man and the father he's become. I hope I can do better to make you proud of me....I know I have a lot to do but I can't let all you've done go by the wayside. I pray for a better ME to be better for my children. I love you ALWAYS!!
"Well Mom, its your favorite daughter!! lol Hard to believe you left us seven years ago. We had one of the most special bonds a mother/daughter could EVER have! You weren't just my mom, we will and will forever remain best friends. I wish we could have spent many more years together but God had his own plans for you. God knew you were struggling to survive, was in too much pain and was tired. I hope you and Steven are taking care of one another. We had so many wonderful times together, going fishing, to the ocean,... the time we went to Tenn. on vacation was awesome. We sat up ALL night talking, as you told me MANY great stories about passed family members. I know you are with those you love now, brothers, mother aunts, uncles and cousins alike. Wow you guys are having a family reunion! lol Tell all I miss them and love them. I had a strange dream mom. I was looking for you and Grandma Shannon. I finally found you both. You both were beautiful! You looked like you did in a picture I have of your Sweet 16! What a hottie You have always been beautiful. But when I walked into the room, you both turned to me and said, why are you here Cat? hen you said' I'm not supposed to be there and I had to go back. It was so real I had to look around when I woke up to see where you went! I know someday we'll be together. Mom I've missed your guidance, hugs and kisses. You NEVER beat around the bush or tried to sugar coat how you felt I loved that about you and much more! When I was a little girl I called you "My Big Mommy, little did I realize you was only 5'2" tall. lol I guess everything looks tall when you're little. I'm happy you was such a wonderful grandma to my kids! They love and miss you so much. Mom gotta go but believe this, I'll be back with more fun stuff we did and shared together and lots of good pictures for you! XOXO Cat"
"Well, as you know, your first granddaughter just turned 40! You once told me not to be in such a rush to grow up because the older I get, the older YOU get....well, looks like you have eternal beauty now and I'm still just getting older ;) I think about you so often that I find myself talking like you're still here. A friend of mine commented "You sure loved your grandma, didn't ya Kelly"? At first I was going to apologize to her for how much I talk about you, but then I looked at her and said "Yes, I sure did, and I was gonna apologize for speaking of her so much and changed my mind because I'll NEVER apologize for THAT! That's how I keep her memory alive with MY kids". I miss you sooo much granny ma. On your birthday, in April, I'll be redecorating your plot, with Spring colors of course. I know your with our Lord and that gives me comfort. Often I just find myself wishing he could have waited to need you just a little longer. I love you....today, tomorrow, forever!!"
"Grandma Linda go figure Tidey is ALWAYS finding to cool stuff to help us feel closer to you!!!! I Miss You and so does everyone else.... Bob is finally where hes supposed to be, hate to BUT L.O.L. keep an eye on all of us and know we love, cherish, and miss you more than words can express!!!! You was and forever will be AMAZING!!!!
