    Claudine and I plan to attend. Your mother was a wonderful lady, I was so sad to hear about her untimely death, she was a little over 2years older than me. She had a wonderful personality, Claudine said she remembers her beautiful voice, but I never have hear her sing, I wish I could of though. She is in heaven now, I will have a Mass at church said for her and will always remember to add her name to prayer list for on my rosary that I pray every day.

    We have lived next to Jerry and Linda for almost a year. I remember being down there and Linda started singing, she had the most beautiful voice. Everytime we saw her she always had a smile on her face. Jerry is the same way. RIP Linda,God has a beautiful singing angel! prayers and hugs to the family.

    Dear Corinna and your loved ones, My heart aches for you in the loss of your dear mother, wife and grandmother. Although I didn’t know Linda, I know she had to be a wonderful mother to have raised you, Corinna, to be such a fantastic friend. Know that you are all in my prayers. My love and sympathy to each of you. Blessings, Kay and Charles, too!

    Linda was such a beautiful person,with a warm and caring heart. Her smile could light up any room! Her love for family was strong. She was always kind and good to me as I was growing up. If my mom was at work, I always knew that Serenna’s mom was close by if I needed anything. I have not seen her in quite a few years. I really wish I could have watched her as a grandma! I am sure she spoiled her grandchildren in a wonderful way!

    Corinna,Serenna, Jerry- I send you my love and deepest sympathy. Hold tight to each other. Those people with the brightest light are the most difficult to let go of. We are all grieving with you.
