    Sorry I couldn’t make it through funeral, but I loved your mother dearly. She was always alot of fun when ever we where around. Last time I saw her was in Sac and she had a clock on her wall that matched my dishes. She took it off the wall and handed it to me but I didn’t want to take it from her. Linda had a very kind heart. I loved her very much.

    I so wish I could be there with my friends and family to celebrate the life of this wonderful woman.
    Aunt Linda’s house was always a home away from home for me growing up as a teenager and beyond . I remember visiting her parents home in Woodland and other members of her family, everyone always welcoming and kind to me.
    Adriane and I were inseparable, she was always at my place or I was at hers.
    Our mom’s were the same kind of wonderful mother’s looking out for both of us but still letting us get away with our crazy ideas and antics, keeping our secrets and letting us get away with way more then our dads would…WAY MORE. But, of course still always waiting up for us making sure we were okay at all times. Pretending she didn’t see us climb out of a window or back in it for that matter. Starting the car with the lights off after we thought everyone was asleep, letting us think we were getting away with something.
    These times were just a small example of this lady who has been in our lives for as long as I can remember.
    She was always good to me and will always be in my heart a very special aunt. I will miss you and think of you always. Love you Samantha
