To my brothers. Your mother will be greatly missed. She was a strong and caring woman. Anyone that could handle those Knowles boys the way she did, was tougher than any man I know. I always felt welcome with her, even after 20+ years when I showed up out of the blue with work, she made me feel right at home. Asking about what I was doing, where I was living, and basically what direction life was taking me in. 20+ years and I think she was still trying to keep her boys out of trouble, which extended beyond her sons, but to all those that were fortunate enough to know her. I love guys and I'll keep you and the family in my prayers. Sorry I couldn't be there.

It hurts a little worse when the good ones are taken from us, but it helps to know that she is in a better place.
She was waved right through the pearly gates.
Thank you to the family for allowing me to share a small part of her life over the past few years. I'll never forget the laughs we shared.
She was a good, funny, and special woman. I wish I had another friend like her, but she was one of a kind.

Ms Linda was in my Life Group at ISBC and Bible study at FoxRidge. She was one of the most sincere ladies of faith I have ever known. She brought so much joy to my life. Praying for her family and her faith family and her FoxRidge family. She was truly loved. Thankful I will see her again one day. ❤️🙏🌹
