  2. My Dearest Friend Linda, You and your Mom were truly a pair….what fun you two would have and the great memories. I feel I was blessed to have known your Mom and shared in some part of her life. She was such a good Mom and you were certainly a wonderful daughter. I’m so sorry she had to leave us so soon, but know she is in great company in heaven and one day we will all be together again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Wayne and your family. XXOO
