I prayed to God to send His Angel's to surround Linda's family at this time of need. Cherish your own special memories of Linda, mom, grandmom and friend. God promised that in His own time we will all be reunited for eternity with our loved ones. May it bring you some peace that her Mom and Dad have welcomed her with arms wide opened, and now you all have another special Angel to watch down on you. Our deepest sympathy to all of you.
