  1. Dear Mom, I miss you so much. You left so suddenly. We all thought you were doing relatively well after your hip surgery. Maybe you left us so that Allen and I don’t have to fight or worry. That’s something you would have done – not to worry others. I love you.

  2. Linda King was my aunt. I remember her from my youth as the kindest, most generous person I had ever met. I will always remember her as such.
