|There is only
one word to describe my beautiful wife Linda, precious.
I first met Linda in a
movie theater in Largo, Florida in 1957. Linda had this pure,
precious, and innocent look to her. I knew this was the girl I was
going to spend the rest of my life with. On October 15, 1958, Linda and I were
We had three
wonderful children. Dusti, Durk, and Traci.
Linda was silently
strong. Whatever happened in our lives Linda handled it with a
steady and loving heart. No matter what came up in our life, her children's
lives, or anybodies life, she was right there to help.
We were married for 42
In 1990 when I lost my
job, Linda was the one who kept me going. Her love and
understanding brought me through one of the darkest times of my life.
On June 10,
1995, Linda was injured in a freak accident. She struck her head
which triggered Alzheimer's. We fought this disease for
5 1/2 years but in the end God took my beloved wife, Linda.
