Diary of a Stay At Home Dad: Linda Claire Linardo 22 March 2012 – 22 March 2012

Linda Claire Linardo, from Knoxville Tennessee, was born on 22 March 2012 at the University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville.  She passed away shortly after birth.

Linda Claire is survived by her twin sister Anne Marie, older brother Frank, parents Tracy & Francis Linardo, grand-parents Frank and Marie Linardo of New Jersey and Linda Rogers of Houston Texas.  She is pre-deceased by her grandfather Bruce Allen Rogers also from Texas.

While Linda Claire has no discernable achievements by today’s standards, she managed the amazing feat of capturing the hearts of all those she encountered, family and hospital staff alike, in her short five hour stay on earth.

She has laid down her burden and found rest with her Redeemer.

      Thanks Lisa. It’s greatly appreciated. We are slowly regrouping, finding our new normal routine, and trying to figure out how we’ll eat all this great food.
