    I’m forever changed for having had Momma Linda in my life. I am a better person for having known her. She loved unconditionally never expecting anything in return. Momma Linda was truly and angel on earth and now has ascended to a guardian angel high above. It is my hope for all the family that you find the way to get through this together, not divided! Lean on each other, do not push each other away! The days, weeks, months even years ahead will be tough…but there is strength in numbers. I encourage you to ask yourselves, what would Linda do?
    Love to all! Richelle, Chelby & Jasmine

    Linda, you were a big part of my life at times. One of my fondest memories were the ceramic classes in the basement in Hollywood Hills when I was a teenager. Rest in Paradise Forever. L is still ringing for U <3
