Today would have been Lynda’s 65th birthday. Together we were signing up for Medicare when she died on December 12, 2013.
So to honor her memory and to give me some form of relief with this being her first birthday that I experience without her, I invited ten of her friends over to the condo yesterday afternoon to tell Lynda stories.
We had a fine time together. Each person brought a package of children’s socks or underwear (which we will give to Threads—-the children’s clothing ministry at our church— in Lynda’s honor). And a friend and I videotaped the event so we could remember the comments about Lynda.
Here are three short examples of the kinds of things these women were telling about Lynda. I hope to complete a video featuring all ten guests. When I do, I’ll share a free link where you can see it.
Amy Taylor, Kindergarten Teacher, Pleasantdale Elementary
Monique Cade-Etheridge, Lynda’s Primary Visiting Angel
Dianne Lux, Taught with Lynda, Idlewood Elementary
Happy Birthday, Lynda!
