Dearest Evelyn, My heart grieves for you. But also rejoices that Linwood is healed and in the presence of his Lord. He will be greatly missed for his gentle loving spirit, beautiful smile and laughter. I am grateful I was blessed to know him. Praying for God to comfort, strengthen, and give you peace, dear lady. I love you
