Linda was always a great friend. She will be missed by everyone. I remember all the great times that the Stubb's, Blanton's and Gallman's had up on Lake Norman. She can check on the parents and see how the poker game is going. I can't wait until we all make it to see each other again. Always remember the good times and keep her in yours and our heart.

Our hearts broke when I heard the news about Linda. What can I say about Linda Bass...she was strong, brave, loving, never met a stranger, kind, spoke her mind, you know the old saying good things come in small packages, that's Linda. She was a firecracker, nurtured those she loved, she loved her animals, she LOVED her son Jimmy and she LOVED Eli her grandson. Tommy and Linda you guys were a great couple, you two seemed made for each other.
I will miss Linda until I get to see her again. Linda was one of a kind, she was just awesome.
Love
Eddie and Pixie

Linda was the best neighbor a girl could ask for. We spent many of afternoons hanging out in the gazebo, smoking cigarettes, drinking beers, having chats, and sometimes doing our nails. I remember calling Linda to ask her if Tommy could take care of a snake for me. Well, Linda came over and took care of the snake herself. She was small, yet mighty, beautiful, loving, giving, and amazing. I am so thankful to have known her and my heart goes out to all who love her so dearly. Lastly, I am attaching a piece of scripture that she used to quote often, wearing a mustard seed around her neck. Love you beautiful angel in heaven, Ms. Linda.
