Oh Linda –
May your body rest in peace… and your soul + spirit soar into heaven and the loving hands of Our Lord and Savior…May the Lord Bless You for the Love and Joy you gave to and shared with Olin and your children these many years, which now, sadly, have become all too few… The Love and Joy, along with You shall not be forgotten… it will be celebrated in the lives and hearts of those that you loved and those that loved you. You will be missed… yet your love shall remain…your departure is far too early… way too soon… Thank You for the Love that you gave my Brother…Lo these past 45 years… for you completed him… as much as he completed you and I don’t need to tell You or Olin that… for all the Love you shared… of which he will in turn share with those who are and those who will come into his life… which shall be comforting… in time… all good things…shall come to pass… Good Journey and God Speed.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss – this loss – of the Woman and Wife that you Loved So Much and Adored… You both had – have – and will ALWAYS HAVE So very much between you and with one another… she has taken you and your love with her in her heart and her life… just as you will always have and carry her in your heart and your life… your lives together… even though now separated in this world…will surely meet again…She is truly now your Angel… and she’ll always be there…you will feel her… see her… hear hear in most everything you do… still loving you… watching over you surely and safely… I am so sorry as these words are perhaps of little comfort to you in this time… your time of mourning… in this world may you be sustained by the love of your family, and your friends and all the love the both of you shared… the flame you have in your heart… let it not be extinguished…rather… burning brightly and strong for your love… and love yourself… just as she loved you… be strong… as strong as you are… and let the love shine through… I wish I had the words to say to make the dark and the sorrow to fade away… my heartfelt condolences you you – your children – your grandchildren – family and friends for sure…with ALL SYMPATHIES & REGRETS – as we mourn your loss –
