  13. Dear Uncle Jim and Family:

    A LETTER FROM HEAVEN

    To my dearest family, some things I’d like to say.
    but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
    I’m writing this from heaven where I dwell with God above,
    Here, there’s no more tears of sadness, here is just eternal love.
    Please do not be unhappy just because I’m out of sight,
    Remember that I am with you every morning noon and night.
    That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through.
    God picked me up and hugged me and He said”I welcome you”
    “It’s good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone.
    As for your dearest family, they’ll be here later on.
    God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do,
    and foremost on that list, was to watch and care for you.
    So when you lie in bed at night the days’chores put to flight,
    God and I are closest to you in the middle of the night.
    When you’re walking down the street and you’ve got me on your mind;
    I’m walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
    So when it is your time to go from that body to be free,
    remember you’re not going you’re coming here to me.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
    Love Mike and Angie Heater

  19. Veronica Palin :

    Jim, Jamie and family,

    Am in shock and so so saddened to hear about Linda.
    Was just referring to her this morning to my insurance agent and mentioned to him how great it was to initially start as a realtor working with the Hunt group and shadowing under Linda’s direction. Committment, understanding and years of experience – I couldn’t be as competent today and bring my son into the business without seeing how your family team works together. Thank you both for that as well.
    I am so sorry for your loss and will be grieving with you… Linda is a very special woman and I’ll miss her. Veronica

    Hopi Prayer

    Do not stand
    at my grave and weep.
    I am not there,
    I do not sleep.

    I am a thousand
    winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints
    on snow.

    I am the sunlight
    on the ripened grain.
    I am the gentle
    Autumn’s rain.

    When you awaken
    in the morning hush,
    I am the swift
    uplifting rush
    of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars
    that shine at night.

    Do not stand
    at my grave and cry:
    I am not there,
    I did not die.

    Jason, Jim, and Jamie,

    I’m very sorry to hear of your loss. Linda was a wonderful mother. I remember her firstly as my friend’s mother, a wonderful and caring mom, who always looked after her sons, and took in their fiends like they were one of her own. And, I’ll remember her as a wonderful lady who brought new homes to many families as she helped my sister and I with new homes to raise our families. Home is were the heart is, and Linda opened her home to everyone, and brought new homes to many. She was a wonderful mother and a kind friend who always had a kind word for everyone. She touched a lot of hearts and will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with Jason, Jim and Jamie and family. Remember her with love and celebrate her life.
