Be at peace Linda. Your race is done. Those you leave behind and loved you, will never forget you. Those that did you wrong will always be left with a guilty conscience, and will never know peace. Rest in peace dear lady.♥️🦋♥️

To the family I'm very sorry for your loss. I didn't get to know Linda as well as I would have liked but I will say she was very good to my two boys and I loved her for that. Rest in peace!
