10 years ago, the world and our family lost a bright light. There have been so many things it would have been fun to share, so many sad times your comfort would have made it easier to overcome. I still miss you. Hugs and kisses to you, Al and Dennis.

Linn, 9 years seems like both a lifetime and the blink of an eye. I think of you so often and wish you were here to see the new additions to the family. You would have had so much fun with them, and they would have loved your humor, stories, and sweet, kind soul. I miss you.

Last Holloween 2009

Shared by Lashon Murry on November 13, 2010

Last year for holloween, aunt linn spent the night..with us. She had so many ideas to make for Daltons class. She suggested Holloween pumpkins with stickers on faces for every child to have in his class. She actually went to pumpkin place and helped purchase 22 pumpkins for the class. She was so kind. She said,  I can probaly get them as a discount, when they see me coming. LOL meaning her in a wheel chair and a widowed woman. She laughed, I said Linn your so funny. We stayed up half the night making Holloween stuff , round donuts we made into scary eyeballs, licorice spiders and much more. Every holiday party she looked up and came up with ideas on his class. And helped with almost all of his parties.She loved to be involved with Dalton and helping . I was the class room mother and I told all the parents the ideas was actually my aunt Linns. We that morning of Holloween took her with us. After the party of school. We went to the Warrensburg trick or treat event. And then that night she went with us to go trick or treating. With me, lee, kass , keston , and Dalton. She loved it.. she said, wow how many people get to go and get candy 3 times on Holloween. His holloween party at school , trick or treating in the afternoon and then again that night. She was beat by the end of the day. And said, I loved it. But , couldnt do this everyday. She was so wonderful. I miss her so very much. She was and is a part of me and my kids lives forever. I miss her being involved in our lives.

My speech I read at Aunt Linn's Funeral

Shared by Tiffany Black on November 13, 2010

 

I have never spoken in front of a crowd before so I brought my sisters along. Aunt Linn was so strong and special to me I had to try for her.

Aunt Linn was the most compassionate person I knew

She was beautiful inside and out

She was hopeful yet realistic

She was a fighter, yet she was kind

She was a women yet she was a child

Aunt Linn loved you with her whole heart unconditionally

She loved you with all your humps and bumps

She installed faith in me through-out my life

Aunt Linn guided me to Jesus Christ and she didn’t try to do the right thing, she just did

As she said in the past we were kindred spirits, now that she is gone a part of me is gone, until we meet again in heaven

The saddest thing to me in my heart is that my son Devon will never know her, I will tell him stories and try to replicate my memories of her, but nothing can compare to our adventures we took as a child walking to the library, or the creative mind she had making crafts with the kids at Grandma’s house

I was born on her birthday, and she was the first person to give me a bath

I was named after her, and she helped raise me

I was Aunt Linn’s baby she told me and inside that made me feel so special

She said I saved her life after Uncle Al died but secretly she saved mine

I loved my Aunt Linn very very much and she strongly impacted my life and everyone she knew

Those who are left behind will miss her dearly and remember the mark she left on their lives

Aunt Linn I will love you forever and until we meet again

I will remember you

 

My letter I wrote and read at the funeral.

Shared by Lashon Murry on November 13, 2010

I wanted to start off by saying I am Linns niece by marriage. I always have loved Linn and my uncle Al. They have been one of my favorite Aunts and Uncles for ever. But when I moved not far from Linn 3 years ago, my relationship with Linn has grown us so very close. She has been much much more than an Aunt. She has guided me through and helped me with the pain of the passing of my mother; been one of the best friends you could ever have. She has fulfilled loving me unconditionally. I spoke with her about everything and as often as every day. Between Danna, Tiff, and I she loved hearing and listening to us so very much. She said it made her feel so needed and she loved calling us her girls. I would also like to say that when the passing of my mother, I feel in my heart Linn guided me through so much that I honestly feel she saved my life. She knew how important it was to me that my son no longer had his grandma and how much he needed someone in his life other than myself. Linn made the difference, she said, "You have to make the relationship," and so she did. Dalton and her become quite the little buddies. One time she was playing hang man with him, we laughed so hard. He didn’t want it to be a man so they made it a monkey, they had put his tail on and some other parts, and when Linn started to draw the monkeys other arm she placed the arm on one side and then she put the next one on the other side. And Dalton spoke up and said, "Aunt Linn that’s not right. You don’t put his arm on his back!" He showed her how to put it next to the other arm. We laughed so hard. She said, "He's right you know, look at it . It doesn’t go there it shouldn’t be sticking out his back." We laughed and laughed. Linn made such a huge difference in our lives the last few years. She was always there for me no matter what! And she told me "I will NEVER I mean never get tired of talking with you and will always be here to listen it doesn’t matter the time you call, you call. I want you to know I will never, and I mean never get tired of talking with you or not want to listen to you about anything and you grieve as long as it takes and don’t let anyone tell you no different." I was so afraid of getting close to another that I actually said to her, "Linn I cant go through this again. I don’t want to loose another person. And I am afraid of getting so close to you." She replied to me, "Lashon you have got to love me , you have to love me.." and poked at her chest and said "love me please. I would be so upset if you did NOT love me." I understood. She was the beauty of my day. Not only on the outside she was beautiful on the inside. I will always be a better person because of Linn. She loved my family , unconditionally. For New years she watched my son and grandson and was so looking forward to it. She loved kids. When she watched kids she played right along with them. There’s no one else that dalton wanted to spend his time with, she did that. And she always told them, "No rules." So new years she watched them both dalton and my grandson and she said they had a wonderful time. She said however that keston, my grandson needed to come with instructions on how to turn him off. Linn laughed and said "Dalton and I crashed and Keston was still running." Later she went on about how great of a time they had and filled in every detail. I told her, "Linn, Dalton said when you said the no rule thing that was something you shouldn’t of said first thing to keston and him. That’s why keston ran all night." Linn laughed and said "That’s right. When I mean no rules I mean no rules." She finished by telling me how wonderful of a night they all had together. I can’t think of a better role model. There aren’t enough words to describe how much she was there as everything. All last year she became almost like the room mother of my sons class. I was the head room mother and let them know all the wonderful ideas came from Linn. She used to crack me up by saying, "Lashon don’t you have any imagination." She thought of everything between scary eyeballs for Halloween, to pumpkins faces she found on the internet for 24 pumpkins we bought. Aunt Linn helped us decorate almost for every party. She was involved on it all. She said, "God knows lashon don’t sign up next year for head room parent." Deep down I can tell you Linn loved it. She would call me with hundreds of different ideas she had came up with. That’s another thing she loved her computer. Funny thing too. When I first gave her , her first computer she asked for me to come back and pick it up. That she hoped that didn’t hurt my feelings she just wasn’t going to use it. We can all laugh at that now. Two days later she calls me back in this little voice and says. "Lashon do you mind if I keep it I changed my mind." I laughed and said, "Linn I knew you would love it once you got the internet." And boy did she! That always made me feel good that I got her hooked! Don’t know why other than I knew she loved it. I will miss her so very deeply I loved taking her to the doctor or just being with her. I have a million thoughts I could say, but have such a short time. And I know as we all have had our times with Linn. I am proud to say I am and my family are very lucky to have had this time with her. She is in my mind! I try to now to understand it but I do not, so a friend helped me by saying this, "On earth she was the caterpillar who now has gotten to turn into the butterfly."

I love you aunt linn and you will always be with me
