Beautiful Linda, you never knew how you touched my life but you were a true ‘soul mate’. Remember our conversation, known you for a day or known you in a former life, we’ve always been connected. Thank you so much for the invitation to the lake last summer – we created some precious memories in spite of Mike’s airhorn. I am so sorry that I was unable to be with you and your family during the last trying days. You will always be in my heart, my friend. Save me a space beside you on the other side. I’ll be along.

Dearest Jimmy, Mike, Debby, Baby Maggie on the way, Jake, James, Ashley and family members:

Bereavement is so personal that few of us, unless we have experienced it ourselves, can comprehend its grief. Linda was loved by so many people. Her pleasant vitality was a continuous inspiration to all who knew her. We hope that our caring will lessen the sorrow that you all bear. Love Aul of Us

Moose: You were and will always be my best friend and closest confidant. Know that you will remain in my heart forever and a day and I miss you terribly, I’m afraid my heart won’t heal from this loss. The only comfort I have is knowing that you are with your Mom and my Mom and many loved ones who have traveled this path before. No doubt you’ll be keeping tabs on all of us so I promise to keep my “parafanations” where I can find them at a moments notice and will keep you in my thoughts every minute of everyday.

Mr. Allsbrook and family,

Please accept our deepest sympathy over the loss of your mother. We know that words will not ease your grief and pain, but we hope the following will help.

Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

I Am Not Here Hopi Grief Prayer

Don’t stand by my grave and weep,

For I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glint of snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

When you awaken in the morning, hush.

For I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circle flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand by my grave and cry.

I am not there, I did not die.

To say that she will be missed would be an understatement and a grievous indifference. She breathed life into each band member and infused the lives of others with such vitality as never to be replicated. As a mom, she gave her family unlimited love and endless possibilies. As a band mom, the music of her soul made rhyme and reason of each endeavor. Her presence will be sorely missed, but her spirit will live on etenally!!
