I have no doubt she is having a happy reunion with LeRoy, Chuck and the rest. I can easily see them playing cards and having a drink. May they all rest in peace and boogy down a little, too.

Aunt Linda was a nice person. I remember spending many days at their house in St Paul. I didn't get to see much of her the past few year. But thought of her often. Fly away home. Love.
