I needed a little time to gather my thoughts after getting the news that your mom is gone. Getting to know Linda was easy because she made it easy. Our husbands were good friends and whenever Ken and Linda came to SD we would see them and have a great time laughing and visiting. I've always been very appreciative for being able to call Linda a good friend. After Roy died, she and I had some good talks on the telephone. Your mom and dad didn't forget about me and you can be sure that I will never forget them either. When we talk about "good people" we mean people like Linda and Ken. Linda was every inch a beautiful lady and she loved her husband and sons very much. Terry and Noble, we heard about both of you when we visited with your parents. As you lay your mom to rest next to your dad, know that I'm thinking about you and I send you my sincere sympathy. And, it's good to remember that they are together again. Sending you lots of big hugs in this time of sadness. Love, Shirley Deckert

So sorry to hear of Linda’s passing.
I will always remember how nice she was to me, even when Terry first introduced us and her knowing I was from New York. She always greeted me with a smile and a hug.
We both had backgrounds in Chemical Engineering and Semiconductors so we could discuss the world of wafers and chips, subjects that don’t appeal most people. She was extremely bright and provided good advice when discussing issues with work or career.
Linda often invited us to hang out at the pool with her family on hot summer days. I learned to appreciate Elvis as it was the only music she allowed at the pool on Sunday!
I will miss her smile and quick wit.
Deepest condolences to Terry, Noble, and Caelyn Rae.
Love, Brian

To Terry, Noble and Caelyn Rae,

We are sorry for your loss. Linda will surely be missed.

Linda was always very outgoing, friendly, and caring. On the occasions that we visited with Ken and Linda, she made sure that everyone was comfortable and having a good time.

You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jim and Mona Goossen
