  1. Dear Dave,
    I got the text this morning about Linda’s passing. I am so sorry to hear this. I tired going through the link, but could not get it to work; in any event, I found this site. Please know you and Shannon have Jeff’s and my most profound sympathies. May Linda rest in peace. We will be sending a memorial gift to the Rocky Mountain MS Center.
    Kevin & Jeff

  2. Dear Dave and Shannon, We have been thinking a lot about you and hope that you can find some peace. I am glad that you were able to be with her and also thankful that I was able to see her. I always thought that she handled her burdens with grace and will always remember her as the beautiful, kind, intelligent person she was.
