Linda she was like a grandma to me and for the longest time I thought she was My grandma because she was always there for me and as far as my memories go back she was. Linda was family to me even though we were just neighbors she treated me and Allison as if we were her own grandkids. I owe it to here for me being the man I am today she taught me a lot about who I am and always gave great advice when needed Linda was family and I will miss her with all my heart I wish I could come back from tech school and say my final goodbye but I cant but she is looking over me from above now I just wish I could give clearance a hug but I believe dad will do it for me
