Linda (Mom Braford to me) will be greatly missed. She was one of the "band moms" when I was in high school and would pick me up for zero hour practice along with her daughter Cheri and my cousin Debbie. It was fun when it was Linda's turn to drive because they had a little dog named Peaches who would ride along. Linda also made my wedding cakes and did such a great job people went back for seconds. The last time I saw her was when I was looking for ballet slippers for my kids and ran into her at the Tacoma Nordstrom store. I believe she worked there. If Linda ever had a bad day I couldn't tell. Always smiling and always helpful, thoughtful, and generous. See you in the morning, Mom Braford.
