    I don’t have a story or a memory to share but I am extremely grateful I was able to finally meet her. I am more deeply thankful that you all had a mom whom you loved so much and how you all had the time you did. I didn’t realize until recently how young she was which saddened me for a life that still seemed to be cut a bit short. She was a beautiful women and it’s great to be able to get to know her a little as you guys post parts of her life in pictures. But I will say, I am thankful for Jill. That is a gift your mom gave me and that’s a pretty special gift. You guys are awesome and glad she’s dancin again. Jules

    I am in shock. Linda used to be the apartment manager where I lived and we really clicked. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. She was a great person and I remember her and I sitting in the office and just talking and laughing.
