This tribute is not about how Linda died
But how she lived her life
She lived to love, and laugh and make others happy
That was Linda's style
With a look, a touch, her smile she could make anyone feel worthwhile
This is about an amazing woman
Who made everyone she met a friend
From the first meeting to the end
Linda met no strangers
Only friends she never knew
And she loved them all
The animals too
She fought for the peacocks habitat
To keep them safe and free
To share their beauty for everyone to see
So… when you see Angel wings of peacock feathers
With their jeweled eyes
Streaking across the Heavenly skies
You will know that Linda has arrived
Linda asking for a peacock ordinance
Angel flying to close to the ground

A poem about the desire to win!
After the abuse of a friend got out of hand and Linda the victim was not believed and could not get help and was even blamed for the break-up of her marriage...She was told "Go back and work it out!"
To ward off the flu virus and, other diseases people used folk medicine remedies, medicine bags called 'Asphidity' bags (that is what my Aunt Hattie called her bag) worn pinned to her under garments.
