My name is Linda. I was born in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1950. My family moved to the Wildwood area, in southern NJ, in 1955. My awesome brother Vic & I grew up in Wildwood Crest, NJ. I have 3 grown children...2 sons, Michael Russell Jr. & Corey Ryan...and 1 daughter Casey Rae. I have a grandson, Gavin Michael...DOB Sept., 3, 2007. I was very happily married to a wonderful & loving husband for 34 yrs. Unfortunately Michael passed away in March 2006. I miss him very much, but he will always remain in my heart. I have an amazing family and friends that helped me get through every single day. I work in a quaint little gift shop in Historic Victorian Cape May called the "Whales Tale". I love working there, and I love the people with whom I work. I enjoy making soy candles, watching Phillies Baseball, reading, poetry, plants, collecting Angels, music, daisies, pearls, walks on the beach, bike riding, a good movie (especially love stories), and just having a good time with my family & friends. I enjoy life and making the people I love happy...I am very passionate & compassionate...I've been told I wear my heart on my sleeve. My music tells the story of my life...there is always a song that that can sum up any special day or time period in my life. I am & always will be a "Romantic"! If you haven't already guessed, I am a very positive & optimistic person. I guess that sums it up about my world. If you are interested in learning more about me...or have any questions, just ask me...I am a very friendly, easy going person who enjoys life...and loves interacting with all people...from all over...I am a people person...I cherish and treasure my family and my friendships! I am a firm believer in God...My God is an awesome God...He reigns from Heaven above...with wisdom, power & love...YES,my God is an awesome God! My two favorite quotes are...."A woman's heart should be so lost in God that a man needs to seek Him in order to find her!"...and "If you capture a woman's heart without touching her body, you have truly made love to her."
