You'd be 67 today; hard to believe you've been gone from this planet for two years. But you're still with me, as you are with so many of us who love you and always will. Peace, for eternity. And love. I miss you. Tina

I talk to you often for I know you are a witness to our earthly comings and goings....and goings and comings as the busy humans we are. I am at peace when I imagine where you are observing us from for I know that place is real and one day we will have a very joyful reunion! My whole body is smiling with you in love.

I sure do love and miss you Linda. I think about you often . I miss our semi annual phone calls. You sure were an important link to our family get-together. I picture you riding a cloud shaped like a horse. Hope you are enjoying the family reunion. Save a nice spot with a view for me. Later

My fondest memories are sitting on the bench in front of Lower School listening to Linda's stories about Annie. Linda took such joy in Annie's antics. She was ever eager to have more information about child development and ideas for how to support Annie to be all she could be. I would say, the proof of LInda's devotion as a mother is in the pudding. What a delightful daughter she raised.

I recently read that when you simply think of someone you love who has passed from this life, they are instantly by your side. I believe this for I feel that often.Thank you for breathing life into the spark of life we call Annie for she is now a bright light for all! Thank you for watching over all of us that love you.

On the morning Linda died, I planted a bed of azaleas and perennials in my garden, where only annuals had been before. I wanted something lasting, something that returns each year. On this day, I have blooms there, yellow, purple and orange - a reminder of Linda's life, gifts, and passing. Today I sing a song of gratitude for her continued presence in my life.

Linda I am remembering a year ago, bringing food out to Dogwood Acres. I gave Annie a picture of you, Annie and Gerry, taken in my front yard soon after Annie arrived. You are smiling and Gerry is nearby like a guardian angel.

Hey Linda! Sharing the experience of collage making with you, Faye, Zelda and Sue was my favorite art class in my 54 years of living. I was so touched when you took home my 3-d collage of a big red bloom with a baby inside and you put it on that gorgeous dining table you made. You had a gift in transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Linda, you're here everyday in Annie...what a gift to the world! I'm sure you're watching and so proud of her as she graduates and looks forward to Guilford in the fall. So wish you could be with all of us as Annie launches into a new phase of life. So much promise and hope! Thanks Linda for your legacy in this beautiful child. Pam

I was thinking about Linda and hamburgers today. I think she would have celebrated with one, so, cheers, Linda! We're feeling the love!
