Yesterday I lost a friend who came into my life in high school, more than 40 years ago. She lost the battle after several heart attacks and hospitilization for over 8 months. I spent the afternoon with her Friday, her 60th birthday, and she seemed to be doing well, and was transferred from an ICU unit to a rehab hospital. We were all so hopeful and expectant that she would be coming home. But it was not to be.
She faced this last trying time as she faced everything...with grace, fortitude and an incredible sense of humor. She never lost her faith, or her concern for others.
She was a loving and dedicated wife, mother and friend. She was a talented artist and musician.
I will miss her more than I even know myself.
She has gone to be with her maker, her faith will take her there...
I love you Linda Lou.
