Linda is the best friend one could ever hope to have. Always full of joy and willing to help someone out. I had the extreme pleasure of working with her for a short time and we had a blast. Love you Linda Jo. See you in heaven sweetheart. 💘

With so much hurt in my heart for all of you. We met Linda in the early 90s when we all worked together with super sales of America, one of my first memories of Linda was her climbing up into my semi with her bright red pump's on. Always so fun and then so many year's of fun especially when we relocated to Peoria and she'd married Tom. I'll miss you my friend!!
