As I sit here tonight crocheting I was trying to recall the last conversation Linda and I had at work. It hit me she was telling me about watching her brothers kids and how she couldn’t change dirty diapers... she said one of the kids needed changed and so Jerry got the trash can because he knew...
As I sit here tonight crocheting I was trying to recall the last conversation Linda and I had at work. It hit me she was telling me about watching her brothers kids and how she couldn’t change dirty diapers... she said one of the kids needed changed and so Jerry got the trash can because he knew his mom was going to get sick changing that diaper! She then said aunt Linda didn’t babysit anymore lol! We had many conversations at night while closing the store down. Linda was always talking to us about her past job and her childhood. Those conversations will be deeply missed. Last Christmas my mom came in looking for help with the seniors that she works with and Linda was the first to volunteer to make blankets for those who didn’t have family. She made 4 beautiful blankets and made 4 happy people. I know she was looking forward to her 2 week trip with a friend, we talked about that too. Linda will be deeply missed by her hobby lobby family. I could go on about the last ten years I have worked with Linda but I will leave it as I am deeply honored to have known and worked with Linda for as many years as I have. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
She was a hard worker, and a wonderdul person to know. I am glad I had the oppertunity to get to know her.
Linda always came to the library with a smile on her face and an armload of books. What a voracious reader! I know I can speak for the entire staff when I say that we will miss seeing her every day. Our thoughts are with you.
She was a wonderful person, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
