    Myron and charmaine, when i first heard the news i couldn’t believe it, Linda was so nice to everyone and especially me, she was the best at braiding hair, she would lay mines out at a moments notice. I still can’t believe she’s gone, i’m so sad, our mothers were friends, and we’ve known each other all our lives, this is a real kick in the gut, to Myron, her daughter, husband and dad, I’m so sorry for your loss, she will be well remembered

She was beautiful and loving then and as years gone by I am sure she has never changed just only for the better. Time to rest my dear child. My deep condolences to the family. You will always remain in my heart, thoughts, and prayers. Continue to look to God for he is our refuge and comforter.

We will get to see the beautiful smile again and it will be forever.
