I would like to give my condolences to Lin’s loved ones. When someone we love dies we may experience a range of emotions that we don’t know how to handle. It is a blessing that we have such a loving God who invites us to come to him with any worries we may have. “While you throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.” - 1 Peter 5:7 Your family will be in my prayers.

Hugs and Prayers. Will miss my wonderful friend. We were always there for each other. Always enjoyed sitting on the bluff watching the dolphins and the sunset. Won’t ever be the same
