Tonight, we celebrated the life of Linda Hoover. During the service, to my complete surprise, the chaplain read aloud an excerpt from my blog post the day Linda died. I don't know how what I wrote came to his attention, but I'm glad that it did. I'm so honored that my tribute was used at her service.
It was also good to see so many ladies at the service who knew Linda through scrapbooking crops and classes. Some of us gathered at a local restaurant afterwards to laugh, cry, eat, and share stories of the spunky, outspoken, and faithful friend whom we all started missing the instant we heard she was gone.
