Wendell I am so sorry for your loss. No words can express the sorrow I feel for you and your family. I have written it in several places but I need you to know I was standing next to the both of you when she left to go shopping and you told her you loved her before she left! I just need you to know this!

My sincere condolences to the family of Linda Turner. Reading about her life let's me know she had a heart full of love, and a caring quite and humble (or feisty) spirit. May you find comfort during this difficult time. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one, Linda, back to life here on earth. In the meantime be comforted in knowing God is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those who are crushed in spirit.—Ps. 34:18, 19. https://www.jw.org./end/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/
