Linda touched many of our lives while she was with us and battled her cancer with more courage and dignity than anyone should. She never lost her hope or faith, and we will keep her alive in our hearts forever. She was the best mom, an inspiration and pillar of strength for her girls, and was always there for every aspect of their lives.
