I am so very sorry! I'm still trying to wrap my head around the thought that she's gone to heaven, so I know you're struggling mightily! God gets you through this time with blessed numbness and He will hold your hand and guide you through the next weeks. She will be missed terribly by all who knew her.

Wayne and family,
I am so, so sorry to hear about Linda. I know you'll miss her beyond measure.
She was such a bright light in this world of ours.
I saw her before Christmas and we talked about Winston and how Michal brought him into your world.
I know it's hard to even imagine life without her. Just know that you're being prayed for and thought of.
