Five years have passed since I got the devastating news of my dear cousin Linda's Passing. Linda was one of a kind as we grew up together. We lived through good times and rough times but though it all Cousin Linda was always there for me. Not a day goes by without me thinking of the great memories Linda brought into my life. You are still loved forever and will never be forgotten. With love Your Cousin John

Dear Linda, it's been 4 years since you left us and I still can't accept it. You were always fun to be with, always caring for others, always smiling. You hid your own pain from all of us and never complained. You were called a "bleeding heart" because you cared and fought for the underdog, the underprivileged. We shared that label and could talk & laugh about it for hours. We lost an angel on earth when you left. I hope you have found peace with the other angels now. I miss you & will love you forever. Cousin Carole

It's been four years since my dear cousin left us. Not a day goes by that I do not think of her and the closeness we had. From our childhood days, wild teen years and as adults with our own families. Linda was like a sister to me. I will hold on to our memories forever!!! The vacancy in our family and in our hearts for Linda will be there forever. Her loving memories with all of us will always live on. I miss you Cuz! John 9/7/2014
