With a heavy heart but happy memories of my years with her, I know Mrs. Hough lived a joyful life. She was a second mom during my teenager years. I have nothing but the best memories of the happy life and home she created. She always had perspective to making wonderful memories and keeping life fun. She was always up making the best adventures for her boys and I had the best time joining in. Thank you Linda for the unforgettable memories. Chad, remember you were always the light of your parents eyes. They loved you dearly. Carry that forward. With love and sadness, Kim Gentry

The first time I met Linda was our first dày at Millis Road School in 5th grade. She was cute and bubbly. She was so kind every time we saw each other over the years.

I can’t put into words how much Linda meant to me. I have so many great memories of my trips to NC that my Mother & Daddy made often for weekend visits! I am at a loss for words and so heartbroken. Linda was the most loving, warm, fun, caring person. She made a huge impression on my life growing up and we shared our love for all kinds of animals! I’m gonna to miss our calls/text. I loved my cousin so much and will treasure all the wonderful memories forever! Chad I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and all the family! David & I Love you all!

I met Linda my first day at Millis Rd and remained friends for the rest of school. She was so kind to me and my shyness. We were both new but Linda made it all okay.

So sorry, Chad. Your mom will be missed by many that have know her kindness.

This is hard for me to accept, losing one of my best and truest friends in life.
We met in junior high school in Jamestown and from that day until today and forever more I love her.
Linda never met a stranger and loved every animal God put on this earth. She even made me feel guilty about one of the activities I grew up doing, hunting.
Once the local High Point Enterprise newspaper published an article about her pet squirrel Rocky who would come from the woods when Linda called his name. She would feed Rocky nuts out of her hand. She even left her sliding door to the deck ajar for him to help himself to nuts she placed just inside for him.
Heaven has gained a true angel who looked after God’s critters while living in this realm here on Earth.
Rest In Peace my sweet friend until I see you again.

In Loving Memory,
