On May 21st our wife, mother, grandmother, gag, dam-o, angel, Linda Marie Braford, unexpectedly left us.
Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Linda knew she was walking proof that great things come in small packages.
Selfless and pure of heart, even on her bad days she would still manage to keep spreading the love of a grandmother. Homemade cookies were her way of spreading love everywhere she went.
Linda had traditional family values. Everything she provided was from the heart as well as her two hands. Linda and her husband Pat kept our family traditions alive year after year.
Even though Linda had to leave; her skills, values, and legacy will never be forgotten and her memory will hold strong in our hearts.
She is predeceased by her parents Floyd and Gladys Grout and her grandson Jacob Reza.
She is survived by her husband Patrick Braford, daughter Cheri Nelms, daughter Tami (Adrian) Reza, grandson Robert Nelms, grandson Ryan (Jaz) Nelms, granddaughter Jessica Reza, brother Bob (Karleen) Grout, brother Jim (Friday) Grout, and many nieces, nephews, and extended family.
Celebration of life to follow at a later time.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change.
