I keep thinking this cannot be real that you are just in the hospital again and will call me soon to complain about the food or the cranky nurse, but the phone doesn’t ring. When I’m at mom’s I keep waiting for you to come upstairs so we can gossip but you haven’t come. I am completed devastated by your passing and have no idea how to continue with everyday life without you. I would give anything for one more Friday afternoon chat reminiscing about our childhood and sharing memories. I find comfort in knowing that you were greeted at heaven's gates by dad and your son Tylor. Not a day will pass that I won’t think about you. I will honor your memory by being the best uncle I can be to your son. I love you and will miss you every day

Linda, one thing for sure is I haven't known you for a long time. But, I will always remember your beautiful smile, gold tan, and all the bling bling you’d wear.
rest in peace

My thoughts and prayers to Mrs. Furtado, Logan, Paul, Angelo, Rosie, and Peter extended family, and friends. Linda I was devastated and saddened to hear the news. I met you when I was 10 and you had the coolest apple book bag and you were so friendly. That memory came back to me like it was yesterday the first day of 5th grade with Mr. Gilchrist. All the memories came flooding back to 5th grade, when he kicked my desk and I still can hear you laughing in his face. We became BFF’s and the rest was history so many fun times through 40 years. We shared so many memories together and milestones in our lives over those years and I am thankful for that. I know your Dad and son have greeted you with open arms in heaven. Life is so unfair at times and you were too young to leave this world. God Bless you my friend until we meet again. "A true friend is never truly gone. Their spirit lives on in the memories of those who loved them." Love you BFF Theresa XOXO
