I have fond memories of Linda from my younger years, she gave the best hugs, made the best vegetable soup, and I so loved that she and George taught this girl who couldn't swim to waterski

Truly Blessed to have had you as my sister! Chosen by my brother he couldn’t have done any better. We always had the best times traveling and being together. Funny loving and always giving my heart is heavy with sadness for our whole family, but full of wonderful memories of my beloved sister. God Bless you Susie. See you later.
