We are SO SORRY to hear about Ms. Mabel. I know she will be so greatly missed. She sure was a SPECIAL LADY and you know just how much We Loved Her. She always had a sweet smile and a kind word for Everybody. She Loved Her Church and Our Heavenly Father. She also Loved her Beloved Husband, YOU, Mr. Lin so very Much. As well, you Loved her Dearly. Ya'll took so very good care of each other. I will hold on to those "Precious Memories " that I have of Ms. Mabel and I know you will do the same. Wrapped in each Memory is the Love that Ya'll shared and LOVE LIVES FOREVER.
I just got out of the Hospital of 12 days and I can't make it to the funeral, but I will be there in My Heart, because I Love Ya'll Both Dearly.
May God Bless your Family,
Love, Janice & Mark Skalicky & Family.
