To all of the family, my warmest and loving thoughts and prayers on Linda’s passing, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, niece, and cousin. When I learned of Linda’s passing, I made a pot of coffee and drank from my Chautauqua mug and cried as memories of Linda came to me. When we were growing up, Linda was cousin and a friend. I remember when we took a walk at Chautauqua when we were young. Grandma Backstrom once told me how much she enjoyed watching the two of us together. Mom and Dad told me about the time when the two us were babies and we babbled as if we were carrying on a real conversation. We “understood” each other, but no one else could. That must have been a real hoot! I also remember attending her high school graduation and when she played her violin. I will always remember Linda’s laugh and her smile. Linda will forever be in our hearts and minds.
Everything from our first meeting, to the cemetery and certificates, thank you cards, flower arrangements, church and obituary were handled in a professional manner. No pressure, no hype with compassion and complete attention to detail.
