When my family moved to Perkasie in 1986,
Mrs. Linda Derstine became a part of my life.
Part of my story.
She always smiled.
She always cared.
She always loved.
When Kaish was born she and her husband Mark
often let us come over to swing on their swings
and play in their sandbox.
Kaish grew up with her grandbabies.
We mourned the loss of Mr. Derstine with her.
Mrs. Derstine was a light in this dreary world.
A beautiful light.
I will never forget her.
63 years wasn't long enough.
