Laura and Jaime;
I am so sorry to hear about Linda passing. Although we didn't remain close over the years I never forgot that she was my family (my niece) and that we shared many hours together during our young years.
Linda left Washington State during her last high school years and lived with my Mother and Dad (her Grandparents) during her senior year of high school, she and I shared a bedroom and had many discussions together. I was one year behind her in high school, she was a year and 3 months older than I but we had lots of family in common.
I hope that both of you can take comfort of the many memories that you shared with your Mother. She was very proud of her Children and Grandchildren. She will be missed.

My heart is aching in the passing of Linda. She was so very dear to me and we became so close in the love of the Lord our friendship. We prayed together and we sing together. The Lord has taken very precious person home.

Linda is part of my childhood, as my family lived right next door to her for many years when I was growing up. I hardly have a memory of her when she was not smiling. She lived in complete awe and adoration of her children, Laura and Jamie. In turn, she treated their friends, including my brother, sister and I with such good humor and kindness. She shared her home, her warmth and laughter with true generosity.
One of my favorite memories of her was when Jamie invited me over for dinner. We must have been about 9 years old. She made ham and white gravy. She took such pleasure in how much I loved that meal. Hah ha! Years later I asked Laura to get the gravy recipe for me and I still use her method to this day and think of her.
She feels more like family than a friend. I know she will be missed because she is loved so very much.
