Linda always had a big hug and a beautiful smile for me. I can't remember 1 time not getting a hug when we would see each other. We met through a mutual friend and I was very happy for the introduction. Her caring and kindness meant the world to me and I'm grateful I had the honor of knowing her... I will miss her.

Don and I have happy memories out by the pool with Rick, Linda, and Julie. We would cook, lay in the sun, play in the pool, and sometimes play horseshoes. It was almost an every weekend thing in the summer time. The most fun times were when we would break out the blender and make pina colada's which was Linda’s favorite cocktail. Linda was one of the sweets people we have had the honor of knowing and she will be missed.

Linda and I shopped traveled and watch our kids grow up, Julie always put make up on Aaron and Linda took a picture of it and kept it and love showing it to him as he got older. We share so many good times with Rick, Julie, Randy, and my boys. Linda wallpapered so much with me but I wasn't much help , we went arts & crafts and she taught me to cross stitch there is so many memories I will cherish forever. She will be missed.

Linda and I met in Idaho many years ago when we were military wives so far from home. When we reconnected it was just like old times. What a sweet, caring Christian friend.

I will truly miss our visits and texts. It did my heart good to know how well Linda was taken care of by her Angel of a daughter, Julie and family.

God Bless each of you.

My heart and prayers are with you.
