    I’m so very sorry, Jeff. What a huge loss. What can one say. I remember Linda as a very protective yet open-minded “Mama Bear” when you and I were going out. She loved her kids and showed me what you meant to her in full force. She relished time when Bill came home from the long hauls. Linda also opened up her home to people that she deemed needed extra help. Sometimes to her detriment, but I guess she couldn’t say no. I remember thinking she was beautiful and hoped that when I reached her years, I could look that good. I won’t, but that’s ok. I see her smile. I remember when she sold a house and was in her glory. I remember her watching old movies and loving singing along to them. This brings home so many memories and unique connections to you and dear Allison and your sweet Dad, Bill and your brothers missed. Genuine, heartfelt condolences. I’m so sorry for your loss. I won’t forget Linda and her commanding need of a cherry blossom chocolate bar. Love, Cin.
