    So sorry to hear of Linde passing. I met her a couple years ago,. I enjoyed hearing her telling the old stories about Kings Mountain. I am sorry that I didn’t get to spend more time with her. To Amy you were such a jewel to your mother.❤️

    Amy, my prayers go out to you and your family as you mourn the loss of your sweet mama. You were her pride and joy and her greatest legacy. Always remember that in days, months, and years ahead on the hard days, because there will always be some. And smile when you see those red birds pop in for a visit and you can sense your mama’s presence. You did right by your mom up until the very end and she left this world wrapped in your loving arms and reassured of your love for her. I pray God’s comfort, strength, and peace for you today and days ahead.

    I only met your Mom once, but I thought she was a ball of fire! I thoroughly loved talking to her. She was feisty and made me laugh (hard!) I know you’ll have a hole in your heart forever, but you’ll see her again. Cherish your memories until then. Ed & I love you.

    When I was the Service Coordinator at Hadden Hall, Linda was one of my favorite residents. Before her heath declined, she took joy in planting flowers which made for a beautiful entrance into the building. I was in awe of her energy and positive attitude. She was so proud of Amy and was fortunate to have her loving support in remaining in her apartment as her heath declined. My condolences to Amy.
