    Dear Linda and Ed,
    Your mother was such an inspiration. She exuded the presence of Christ in so many ways but the big and most obvious was in and through her smile. To all who encountered her and was a recipient of her genuine smile, encountered the presence, joy, love, compassion and peace of Christ that permeated her being.
    You both have inherited her Christ like qualities and through you her lessons, faith and strength will shine.
    She was a lovely woman and I will miss seeing her with you. May the peace of the risen Christ be with you during these difficult times. May her smile
    be a source of joy, her courage be your strength and her returning home to God be your hope.

    Dear Linda and Eddie,

    Heartfelt condolences. I prayed the Rosary with your mom and dad for years after daily mass at Fisher. It meant the world. They were both so humble and inspiring to this Catholic gal looking for God…the Real Deal. May you both experience true peace during this difficult time. As Jesus declared…”I have overcome the world….take heart!”

    Sincerely in Christ,
    Diana and John George

    Linda, I will keep your mom, you and your family in my prayers. September 12th, the day your mom passed was my mom’s birthday.
    May God welcome your mom to her heavenly home.
