Linda was one of the bravest, courageous, strongest and most honest woman I've ever met in my life. I've never had this empty, punched in the gut feeling before, and it's going to be hard living without this beautiful woman in my life. Because I know Linda so very well, I know she is spreading her wings and enjoying her flight with Jesus, Jeremy, and her parents. I don't know how but I will learn to heal because I knew she was tired of this fight and ready to be with them.. I will miss you Linda so very much my dear dear best friend; I will forever cherish our 20+ years of friendship. Praying for her boys, grandchildren, family and dear friend/sister-n-law Mel, who drove Linda to Columbus every month for three years and going above and beyond for Linda in so many ways. I've met Mel twice and could immediately tell how amazing she was.Mel was a true God send to Linda. God bless you all! RIP my beautiful Linda Sue Rose;). ps Linda..... I'm a little ticked that your making me go see Magic Mike 2 this summer alone😘
