I met Linda when she and Brenda came to Subway to work for me. They both were sweethearts. Linda was a very hard worker. I'm know she will be very missed.

Words will not be able to express this hurt. Linda was my spiritual sister. We met at Cardinal Health and the friendship blossomed. Laughs until we had tears and tears until we were able to smile. Just know she is never far away and will speak to you often in your dreams and when you quiet your mind. Her Spirit is still thriving and will always be around. Love you! Until we meet again.

Linda came into my life (along with Brenda and Lisa- Niki was already a friend) at a time when I really needed great friends. They helped me through a really hard time and i will forever cherish our memories. Just a few were our bowling nights, bar nights and our stay at the deer creek cabin. She had a wonderful soul and personality. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
Prayers for Brenda and Linda's family.

Love always Tammy

Linda was a fantastic person. So sweet and personable. I met Linda in Columbus and she was a part of our softball team with Brenda. Linda was also very loving and thoughtful. I will miss her smiling face and beautiful smile.

I am so sad to hear this awful news. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Linda's family and friends. I will always cherish my memories of Linda and the friendship and fun we had as kids in the early 70's. "Childhood friends may not always be on your mind, but they are FOREVER in your heart!!"

We lived across the street from each other on Kirkland AFB, hung out under the light pole in the corner of my yard, along with our other friends on the block. Linda was always smiling and happy go lucky mood. Linda you will be missed greatly by all, but your in a better place.

Linda was a friend to so many. She was a special person who brought light and laughter in the room. She was so kind to me when I started at Cardinal. She would go out of her way to help others it was her nature. She will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
