To Rosie and Family,
For almost 40 years, LInda was a special friend. She always accepted me with much love and a great big smile. I loved the ham with avocado sandwiches that she would send me at BHS way back. She raised a very fine family, all of whom were so special to her. Her children were her pride and joy and she supported all of you in all your endeavors. She gave you all a good example and was always happy to spend time with you. I will always remember the trips we took to California to visit her family and the fun we had together. She has now gone home to rest and will now continue to guide all of you as your guardian angel. You know how much she loved you all and she knew how much you loved her. May you hold on to all those happy memories together. My sincere condolences to all of you. Judi (J. Rod)
