Sincere sympathy Maddy to you and all your family for the loss and sadness on losing Linda at this time.
She was our next door neighbour and was always there on the front porch willing to chat and share
a few laughs. You never knew when she would show up at your door with a treat, like special cookies
or that delicious fudge she shared with us. Linda was a very thoughtful and caring lady to those who
knew her, especially the little ones who came to visit her from next door on a regular basis.

"Your Presence We Will Miss, Your Memory We Will Always Treasure" May you Rest In Peace.

Linda, wasn't just the cookie lady , or our neighbour, she was our friend. Maverick and I will miss seeing you out on the deck and knowing we were always welcome to come over for a cookie and a chat. It was hard to tell the littles you were gone, but they reminded me that you weren't really gone, because you were an angel in the sky that was watching us play and all we had to do was look up and you would be there smiling down at us. In your honor we have decided that March 8 will be cookie day! We will bake cookies and remember our friend, the cookie lady. Thank you Linda, for opening up your door and your heart to my family and my littles, we will never forget your kindness.

Linda was such a beautiful lady. She had a wonderful personality and was so easy to be around that it didn't matter if there were years between visits because she always made you feel at home. She was such a positive force and her smile and laughter would inevitably lighten your heart. I loved playing cards with her…I just didn’t like giving my money to her when I lost. For all those who feel her loss be comforted for the Lord is with you and Linda
Matthew 5-4: Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted
