I love you grandma. You will always be in my heart.

Aunt Linda, I will miss you! I have such good memories of you and the family visits to us in Memphis and our visits to you in Illinois. I am so, so glad we found each other again after all those years.

You were truly one of God's angels on earth, always thinking of other people before yourself. Thanking Him that all your illness and worries are gone, restored fully in heaven. Looking forward to the day we can all be together.

Till then,
Love you!

A lovely lady of God who showed us all how to live the Christian life, A lady of much love and hospitality. It was a blessing knowing her from my teen years till today. She was dedicated to the Lords work,

Linda meant a lot to me and all those who were part of the Builders for Eternity for over 20 years. She was our snack and cook for dozens of mission trip projects to help build churches in Illinois and Missouri. She interpreted for Melvin who is and was always an inspiration to us all.
She used her gifts to help us bless others many times for many years.
We will miss her, but we know by her testimony and life she will be with our Father in Heaven. May God clearly reveal His presence and shower His blessings on Melvin and the family especially during this time.
Love to you all.
(Janie and I are sorry but we are in North Carolina at our daughters and will be just getting to Florida on Saturday, so we will only be able to be there with you in spirit on Saturday.)
