I'm truly sorry for your loss. Linda was a very good hearted person, I worked with Linda for awhile, and our children knew each other. Sending prayers to all the family at this time of your grief. Just know she is at peace, and no longer suffering. It is very heartbreaking to lose someone, but we must trust they are in God's hands now.
