Linda and Steve were such Amazing sweet people who loved the Lord and their families. I'm thankful to have had the pleasure of having them in my life. Linda always made us smile. Always had kind words for everyone she met. I did not see them on a regular but I know they are still together. Steve doted on Linda and God knew they were meant to be together in life and in Heaven. Pray for peace for the family.

Steve and Linda were family to me, my own parents passed away some years ago and they sort of adopted me and they called me every week to check on me like parents do, Steve would talk a while and he would say here’s Mom, I loved them both so much and I just think of Steve waiting there for Linda as he took her hand and walked thru the gates of glory together! They loved their family and were so proud of their grandchildren they will forever live in our hearts and memories!

I was very saddened to learn of the death of Linda Bolton Yoder. She was married to The Rev. Mr. Steve Bolton when Steve was the pastor of my church, Green Hill Baptist Church of Rutherfordton, NC.

We dearly loved Linda. Her kindness and concern for every member of our church was evident to everyone.

I send my sincere sympathy to her children, Kim and Steve. May it comfort you to know that we loved your mother so much.

Ms. Linda was such special lady. She had the sweetest soul and calming way. She made you feel like you were special. The world is dimmer now but heaven is a little brighter and I know she’s rejoicing and being in the arms of Jesus. My heart and much love goes out to Kim, Steve and the rest of her family.
