I will miss my sweet friend. Linda and I were related by our precious Jacob who served as both her grandson and my nephew, our lives intertwined over the years but it was his death that bonded us forever. Linda always included my husband and I for family gatherings and treated us as her family and she was ours. I will cherish every moment with her, our trip to Destin shortly after we lost Jacob will forever remain in my heart, two broken hearted people spent many nights sitting in that sugary white sand remembering him, laughing at some of our memories, cried buckets of tears and screamed sorrow into the Gulf waters and always got the answer back from God... Seemingly never ending stars, a moon that calmed our souls and waves that lulled us to sleep, He heard our cries and He allowed us to be angry, He watched as we screamed and He gave us peace and healing.
I am thankful God has delivered Linda from the chains of Cancer, something man could not do. I am thankful He allowed me to share an exceptional young man with her and I am thankful He made us family.
Strong, beautiful, intelligent and loving.... We have all lost an angel.

I met Linda at one of the darkest moments of my life. But, she didn’t let my light go out. She was so caring , loving and became a dear friend! She was a caregiver, listener, and friend. I will miss knowing she is gone, but I know I will see her again one day! Fly high my friend...

Our Precious Angel has received her wings.
We have been blessed to have received the generous gift of Linda’s love, beauty and laughter.
She loved hard and we all had the comfort of knowing that she would be by our side with one phone call.
She loved her family, her friends her pets and horses and the list goes on.
She loved laughing, music, dancing, counseling, protecting and talking.
Words from a song that she would blast in her car come to mind: “You fill my heart with gladness; take away all my sadness. Ease my troubles…that’s what you do. And she did! Thank you my friend.
My prayers to her family and friends and to all that loved her.
Rest now sweet Linda. I will love and miss you for the rest of my life. Rita

Linda and I went to school together. She is one of the most beautiful souls I’ve ever known. She blessed everyone she was around. I’m going to miss her happiness and smile. Heaven is brighter with her there.

So glad We were able to celebrate Rita birthday in Shreveport in June. We laughed for hours (which was common) when we three would get together. Linda loves her friends and genuinely cares about others. I am going to miss her so very much.
