    I never met or knew Linda, but Rosie is my sister-in-law.I’m sure Linda like Rose was one of the nicest, sweetest & kindess persons one could ever know. Always with a big smile & hug that made one feel so honored to know & love her.
    Our deepest Sympathy to all of her family. A friend sent this to me when my Mom died & I hope you get as much comfort from it as I did.

    Gods Garden
    God looked around His garden & found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth & saw her tired face. He put His arms around her & lifted her to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that she was suffering, He knew she was in pain, He knew that she would never be well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, & the hills to hard to climb, so He closed her weary eyelids & He whispered, “Peace Be Thine.” It broke your hearts to lose her but she didn’t go alone, for a part of you went with her on the day God took her home.

    I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life,
    but you’ve always stayed close beside me.
    I’ve taken a lot of wrong paths in my life,
    but you were there to guide me.
    Whenever I was facing a problem,
    you’d ask me what was wrong,
    I’d just say “nothing” and walk away,
    but you knew all along.
    Then, through all the good times
    you were there to give a smile,
    and just when I thought you’d walked
    away you’d been there all the while.
    There were a few times I asked for advice
    and you said you didn’t know.
    Even though you did,
    you had to let me learn on my own.
    I know I’ve done some things to hurt you,
    and I can’t even tell you why.
    I hate myself for doing them,
    I know I’ve even made you cry.
    I guess I was young and stupid,
    and thought I was always right.
    When you wouldn’t give me my way,
    I’d always put up a fight.
    Now that I’m all grown up,
    I realize how wonderful you’ve been.
    That even after all I put you through,
    you’d do it all over again.
    Because of all your love and prayers,
    I guess I turned out ok.
    I owe it all to you mom,
    you got me where I am today.
    Thanks for always being there,
    and for always pulling through.
    Thanks for being a great wife,
    a loving mother,
    and for all the hard work you do.
    I just want you to know how special
    you are to me in every way.
    Once again I love you.
