I used to love going to play at the house in Moss Landing throwing rocks off the cliff and having linda yell at me.. “Dirtball quit throwing rocks” i would laugh. and keep throwing them. as of late i would always try to send linda stuff i was doing on facebook and keep her updated on me even if she never responded. I knew she would read it.. 🙂 Lots of Fun times and memories with Linda and my Uncle Jim. 2 really great people. I’m gonna miss her.

    Your a lucky girl cousin Lisa! you were raised well! 🙂

  14. Lisa, Chuck and Charles. So I’m sitting here thinking about your Mom and everything she meant to me, and I can hear her saying “Misty, suck it up and quit crying” and then she is laughing, her laugh.
    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I wish the distance weren’t so great because I’d really like to give some hugs right now. Lisa, your Mom was a special lady, she will always be close in my heart. What a wonderful Aunt she was to me. I will honor her always. Please know I am thinking of you all and sending you love from Arizona. I was thinking the other day that Linda must be having a great time whipping Uncle Jim into shape in heaven, cause we can only imagine what kinda havoc he’s been up to these last 10 years. What a reunion that must be.

  16. We are so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. We have some great memories of all of our years of vanning. It seems like we were getting together almost every week end at someone’s house, whether it was at Jerry & Mercy’s or your Mom & Dad’s, or Larry & Joan’s. Those are memories that we all love to reminisce about.

    I hope all of the wonderful memories you have of your Mom comfort you during this difficult time.
