Too many great memories to share! From her laughing at Chris for refusing to wear anything but his diaper, her fussing at Brian for skipping school, sitting around John's kitchen table every holiday. Linda LOVED her boys! ❤ What I'll remember most is how I watched her single handedly create a better life for her family. I'll always remember her hugs and the sound of her laughter.
