  1. Mike: Our most sincere condolences go out to you and your family. We hope you can take solace in the fond memories you have of happier times with Linda. God bless you all.

  2. Mike : We cannot even begin to imagine what you’re going through and how difficult all this must be for you. Please know that we wanted to travel to PA to pay our respects, but Hurricane Irma put a damper on our travels. Your visit to Florida in May was on Linda’s bucket list and we are so happy we got to spend time with her and create some recent memories. She will truly be missed.
