Dearest Bruce, Lauren and Emma. Our thoughts are with you as you lay your precious Lindy to rest. Sending love and prayers as you navigate this very sad time in your lives. “We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in the warmth of sunlight’s kiss upon its face before it folds into its fragrance and bids the world good night to rest its beauty in a gentler place. But we can know that nothing that is loved is ever lost and no one who has touched a heart can really pass away because some beauty lingers on in each memory of which they’ve been a part.” -Ellen Brenneman
All our love Gaydre, Rob, Nikita and Taryn
