    I love you Lindsay. You never failed to help me and my kids and would have fought to the death if Jared, Phillip or I eere ever in danger. You dropped everything to help us move from Los Angeles to Portland, OR. You helped me start my business, you took us fishing with David. When Phillip was in trouble, you jumped in and told me to get him a bus ticket and you sacrificed much 9help him. There is so much more I can say…in a sum, you were always about love and family, even in your deepest troubles. I will miss you. Sharon (sis)

    Lindsay, you followed me and the boys everywhere we went. You have been a fixture in my life since 1984. I can hardly believe that you are gone! It just doesnt seem real. Thank you for your sense of humor even at the end!! Thank you for your final call and final “I love you” just the other day. It was such a wonderful surprise! You were always such a fighter and had so many demons you wrestled with. You can rest now. I have no doubt that you will be with us on our journeys through life. Please watch over the grandhchildren and see that they they grow up safe and strong. I know there are things we would both do differently if we could. I love you and you will be missed!

    Lindsay, we have had many discussions. I have answered many questions about Christ and the Bible. But you are in Gods presence now, all your questions are answered now. See you later, my friend.
