Chyrel, Kathy and Kim. My heart hurts very much to hear that your mother has moved on… She was one of the most wonderful island ladies that made me feel like I was never an outsider. She treated me with so much kindness and respect and I loved getting to know her over the years. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers in the days and weeks to come. Love, Linda
