“Dear Gordon and Family,
My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Lynda was the best person I have ever known. For years she cared for my daughters and I always told them that she was a much better mom than I could ever hope to be. I truly meant that. This world has lost a great person. Heaven has gained an angel who will watch over all of us. ”

“Gordon, Sheila, and Shawn,
So sorry to hear about one of the best lady’s I’ve ever known. She was always so caring and gracious to me and my family over the the years. I often think back and remember some of the great times I enjoyed at your house as a youngster. I could not have asked for a better caregiver when I was a kid, she is one of the most sincere and loving people I’ve ever met in my lifetime. She will be greatly missed, but the great memories will never be forgotten by me or the many others she cared for when we were young. My deepest sympathies go out to your family.”
