I don't know if I've ever posted anything in your guest book. I guess now is the perfect time. Well it's my 35th and I miss you more than ever. Ever single day I think of you and love you. It's weird how there's actually a void that only you could fill. You'll always be my best friend and I really wish you were here.

Merry Christmas Linds...I wonder how Christmas is where you are now...I'm lighting candles for you tonight...I've been up and down with emotions this week. Had to get things done for the kids but in my head I would have much rather stay in bed. It still feels so fake and phony, like a cruel joke that someone is playing on us. I miss you very much and right now it's so fresh that I still have some weird hope that you'll be back. I wish with all my heart that you could be with us some how for Christmas. I miss our friendship, our talks, our fights, just hanging out, shopping, doing stuff together with the kids...I am blessed and cursed to have you as my only sister. I wouldn't trade it for the world, I'll take the pain with the joy. I love you so much Lindsay and I hope that you are no longer needing my constant over protection. I still worry about you, even now. Merry Christmas...I love you...Ry.

Warm Summer Sun

Warm summer sun,
Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.

Shauna, Curtis, Ryann, Tylee & Jackson, I want to express my deepest condolences to you at this time and let you know that you will all be in my thoughts and heart during this time. We here at the center were so shocked to hear of Lindsay's untimely passing and thought the world of her. She was such a bright light and a true joy to have around. Tylee, Jackson, Evan and Drake she loved you guys so much and you could see the love she had for you when she spoke of you. Lindsay was such an amazing person and I am so thankful for the time I had to get to know her. To see her interact with children was such a blessing because of the love she had for them. God be with you during this time and please remember the good times and the wonderful memories of Lindsay.

My sweet and precious Indsay Windsay Bindsay. I can still see you and your sister Ryan in my rearview mirror sitting in the back seat of my car (you were only 3 and 5 years old). The radio is playing Jessie's Girl. The two of you are singing as loud as you could (infact you were harmonizing) , smiling having a fun time. The two of you were joy and a delight. You both brought smiles to everyone. I love you!.

Shauna, Ryan, Jackson, Tylee and Curtis. I love you and I am here for you all.

Ryann

My heart is aching for you. I don't know what I would do if I lost one of my sisters:( You had each other to lean on, to fight with..... just knowing she would always be there for you. I fully understand the bond between sisters and can't even imagine the void. I know no one can replace Lindsay but I hope you know that you have alot of friends that love you like a sister. Please know that we are here to help you through this.

We love you!

I am so sad for our loss. Lindsay will be missed by those that knew her. I pray we can all help her children know the mother that left them too early. Share your stories, write them down in case you forget something important. Tylee and Jackson will need those through out their young lives. God bless you all.

Lindsay,

You always welcomed my family and I into your heart and for that I thank you. You will forever be in my heart. I wish we had more time to get to know each other.
I still remember how much you lived adventure and life, always living it up to the highest possibilities.
You will forever be missed.

Ryann,
I know Lindsay loved you with all her being and I know she will forever be with you. Lindsay always made the room light up just by walking in. She’s the biggest daredevil. She always amazed me.
To her babies,
Your Momma loved you so much, and I know she’s so very proud of both of you. You may not be able to see your Momma but know she is there with you every day, giving you hugs and kisses.

To all of Lindsay's family and friends,
I’m so sorry for your loss, you’re in my heart, and please let me know if you need anything.
Save a seat for all of us Lindsay.

Though I haven't talked to Lindsay in a few years she was a huge part of my life growing up. I'll never forget meeting out on "the green thing". We had so much fun being neighbors and hanging outside, having sleepovers, and getting into mischief! She was a good friend and full of fun. Lindsay you will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with your family during this time.

Lindsay,

I still remember meeting you in the 5th grade. You had this huge smile and you laughed all the time! You were always so much fun to be around. Even though I haven't seen you since high school it was great re-connecting with you over these past couple of months. I was so sorry to hear of your passing, but I know you are in heaven lighting it up with your smile! Thank you for your friendship.
To Lindsay's family and children- you are in my prayers and I wish you all comfort in your time of loss.

Love,
