Ron Chris and Brian. My heart is breaking. I loved your mom like a sister. I haven’t seen her in quite a few years and am in total shock of her passing. Ron- I cant imagine your pain and sorrow. You two were meant to be together. You fit like a good pair of gloves. I’ll never forget the fun times I had with you two and the laughs and jokes. But looking back it was never enough I’m sorry our lives went indifferent directions but I’ll never forget either of you. I love you and hope to get to see you in the near future. May Linda Rest In Peace. God bless

My sincere sympathy goes out to the entire family and all friends of Linda. What a wonderful person! Linda worked at AMC with my mother, Joyce Pugh (who I lost in 2005). I became friends with Linda on Facebook and watched her enjoy the Pie Puppy reunions, her family, and traveling across the US. She many times would pass on her memories of my mother which I cherished. God Bless Linda.

Dear Lin,
You have been my bestfriend and partner in crime for 63 years and we will continue this for eternity.
We have supported each other through thick and thin, always been there for each other and for my part I am always grateful to you. We discussed this scenario Lin and we were supposed to grow old together, sitting on the porch in our rockers or was that standing around on our walkers, whatever!
I love you and I miss you and and think of you everyday, you will always be in my heart and thats what friends are for.

My condolences to Linda family and friends. I met Linda at AMC, we were co-workers for years. She always had a smile and always brought us treats. We got separated after 911 which I left AMC to the Pentagon and was deployed to Iraq, i found her on facebook, praise God. I will miss Linda, her jokes and chats on Facebook...this really got me by suprise, I hardly tyoe this memory without tears. She loved her Ron, family, friends and mostly Tater, her dog which was her best friend in the world. God has now another Angel, we all will miss you Linda.💝💝

I met Ron and Linda in 1977 at Indian Springs Air Force Auxiliary Field. Ron became my best friend. Linda and my wife did a lot together when we were TDY (most of the time). My boys played with Brian and Chris out in the desert often. We have visited several times since those 3 years together.

I would like to express my condolences to Ron and the family. Linda already has a place in heaven and she is smiling down on you all!

My first real job out of high school was with the Dept of the Army. For two summer and Christmas breaks I had the good fortune to be assigned to the same office as Linda Flick. She was one of the few people I’ve known in life who was genuinely delightful. Even under stress, her joy and beautiful spirit always showed. You can find this same light in her entire family.
Thank you for being my friend, Linda.

I met Linda through Winnie. Winnie had been part of a litter of dogs known as the Pie Puppies because they had all been named after kinds of pies by the rescue group Dogs Deserve Better. Winnie was originally Cherry Pie and Linda had adopted Sweet Potato Pie (aka Tater).

For fun, Linda decided to hunt down all of Tater's siblings and their owners. Soon she was hosting official Pie Puppy Reunions at her house. She put so much work and love into gathering us all together. It made us feel connected and special.

As life continued and our lives changed, Linda kept in contact with us all. Even after I was no longer a "parent" to Winnie, Linda and I talked regularly through emails and Facebook. She checked in on me and we had many delightful conversations.

Linda and I only met in person twice, but her fun-loving spirit and love touched my life in a way that I didn't feel fully until learning that she was gone.

She was truly someone who made this world a better place. I will miss seeing her smile, her updates about Tater and Ron and our little chat sessions.

While I never met Linda, I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris for a very long time.
I believe we are all the products of our upbringing. I find Chris to be kind, thoughtful, generous, personable, goodnatured, funny (and talented!) and this is certainly a reflection of Linda's parenting.
My condolences to the entire family and friends.
Our Moms are always with us, if only in spirit now.

I am so sorry for our loss. My family's thoughts and prayers are with Linda's family. I had the pleasure of growing up near the Flicks and was a frequent visitor to their home. Linda and Ron always made me feel welcome and part of the family. Linda will be missed.

Chris Brian and Ron, I know you guys will miss Lynn very much but what you have are good memories that you can share with your kids, family, and friends. I know I will miss bumping into her and Ron in Safeway and Walmart. She loved you guys from the bottom of her heart and would only want the best for you. Know that now she is with God and that she is your angel and that all her pain is gone and she is shining down her love to you. I am so sorry for your loss and know that your loss is ours too. I love you guys so much my heart is breaking for you.
