Condolences to the Family

I met Linda only once, at the wedding of her great-niece Jessica and my son, Matt.  It was a delight to meet her and Diane, to send them back to their hotel with a bouquet from one of the tables.  I’ll never forget what a gift it was for Linda and Diane to come to Texas for the wedding. We were all so happy for Jessica and Matt.  That is what I will remember:  how they shared sheer happiness with their family and mine.
