• Linda Alicia Martens September...

Linda Alicia Martens September 23 1944- September 12, 2006 September 12,2017. Today marks the eleventh year since you went to heaven. However, your spirit remains alive in my heart. Each day I try to use the strength of your spirit as a guide on how to live my life. Your eternal smile at adversity, your giving heart for whomever you might meet that needed help, your desire to be better each day. All of these traits are fuel for my soul mom. They help me be determined. They help me believe I can and will succeed. They help me to discover the possible when all I can think about sometimes is the impossible. Together we held hands for 38 years, and I learned so much. I learned that as long as you are willing to work hard -your dreams can come true. I learned that seeing obstacles as challenges and working with a plan is a large part of how to succeed. I learned that passion and honesty are two important keys to success in everything you do. I also learned the most important four letter words in life are to love and to care. I also know that I am the luckiest girl in the word because I had you- Linda Martens- as my mom and best friend. Thank you for 38 wonderful years of life lessons, love, and friendship. I am forever grateful. With love and a few tears, Sherri
