PATRICIA GRACE MADRID LINEHAN Dec. 23, 1961 - May 12, 1999Seems impossible that it has been a year since God, in his infinite wisdom, called you into his presence. And yet in another sense, we have missed you so much that it seems like years that you have been gone from us. Not a day goes by that we do not think of you, and the pain and loneliness are ever present. It has taken the dedicated effort of many people to do just a small part of all the things you seemed to do with such ease and success. We are just now beginning to fully comprehend what an exceptional person you were. Your children are well and they, like us, are coping. Their presence in our lives helps us to keep going and gives some meaning to our lives without you. Know that we will continue to do whatever is necessary to lessen their pain and help them adjust to their new lives. We will nurture their memories of you and will forever keep them alive in their hearts. These memories and an unwavering faith that we will be together again will see us through this and will sustain us until we meet again. So, my darling, be at peace and let the brilliance of God's love for you, shine through and console us.Your Loving Family
