Linda brought me almost 5 years of pure happiness - she was a soul mate. We enjoyed so many things together - going to concerts, movies, going out to dinner, going for walks, drives and trips to South Carolina and Florida. I felt at ease and completely comfortable with her. When she became ill, I felt responsible for her comfort and well being. I miss her so much. But I know she is at peace forever - I know she is at home with God.

Linda was a kind and caring mother-in-law and her loss leaves a huge hole in my heart and the hearts of her grandchildren.

I worked with Linda at The Flying Goose for almost 20 years. She was one of the sweetest people I ever met. She had a laugh that was contagious and she had a way of making even the shyest child feel comfortable in a new school. She cared for so many children and held so many parents hands. The world has lost a big heart and a wonderful laugh. Sending love to her family. Liz

I have known Linda for 43 years. She was always there for me when I needed someone to talk to. She was a great listener, nonjudgmental, and always willing to help. I will remember her sense of humor and laughter. She was quiet and kind. I will surely miss her. Rest In Peace.
