Linda A. Shoemaker is a retired teacher of thirty four years.  She and her husband, Jerry have resided in Warren County, Kentucky for forty-three years. They are the parents of one daughter whose husband is a fireman, and are proud grandparents of a grandson.  This little boy is bringing great joy to the family.


The family will always struggle with the shadow of their son's death on their lives.  She accepts there will continue to be painful moments and days of overwhelming sadness. When there is much love, one experiences great sorrow at their loss.  She believes in praising and singing the hurt away.  .....We do not grieve like the rest of men who have no hope..... I Thessalonians 4:13.  Our hope is in Christ who gives eternal life.
