".. from my ragged heart to yours"

~*Endings...and NeW BeGiniNgs~**

Linda's life on earth ended
last Sunday ~




I will miss her bright smiles,
the warm friendly glow
she always
brought along with her
in our school building,
The love she had for
her students
and
all of us.

Most of all
I will miss her prayers.
Her faithful support
of me while going
through difficult life situations.

But she left me with  a
POWERFUL life lesson:
Not only did she teach me
how to live...
She taught me how to die
graciously ~ lovingly.

Beautiful Linda
I love you dearly
Sweet Gal.

Katie,
You are such a thoughtful and caring person. I know this must be a difficult loss for you. My thoughts and prayers go out to you. I want to thank you for your wonderful gift you made for me. Such a joy to receive a handmade gift in the mail just for me! I keep it on my desk at my work space so I can see it as I work on my images. You are special :)

Katie~ I am so sorry about your dear friend. She seemed like such a strong, special peaceful soul. Awhile ago you had posted about her and I visited the site to donate and ended up reading her story and signing up for the updates. So, when the final update came, I felt a loss as well. Thinking of you, her family, and all those she touched.
