    All condolences to the family.
    The Chain:
    We little knew that day,
    God was going to call your name.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    In death, we do the same.

    It broke our hearts to lose you.
    You did not go alone.
    For part of us went with you,
    The day God called you home.

    You left us beautiful memories,
    Your love is still our guide.
    And although we cannot see you,
    You are always at our side.

    Our family chain is broken,
    And nothing seems the same,
    But as God calls us one by one,
    The chain will link again.

  5. Rest In Peace, Linda. And thanks for all the great memories and fun times. We all will miss you.

    Mr. Tucker (Danny)

You were and your spirit remains the best that a boy could hope for in his ma’… (had to say ma’ cause you learned to like it, of a fashion) Just listened to “Don’t worry be Happy”… you love that song and I would sing it to you if you were down… God knows I miss you…
