We will always remember Linda's kindness and uplifting spirit.
Linda voulnteered and drove us to the park to take pictures and to the Chapel so that we could enjoy our wedding day in comfort and style. (In Her and Charlie's cool Impala SS )
She was a 1st class person that touched many lives.
Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the Family during this difficult time.

Linda was such an amazing Mom and Wife and I am absolutely heartbroken that she left us so unexpectedly. She touched so many lives and we will miss her more than words can say. She was also an amazing Mother-n-law to Mikey and treated him just like her own. We love you so much and feel a little at peace knowing we have an amazing angel watching over us!

We love you so much and your memory will always live on in our hearts.

Linda loved her family fiercely. I saw it first hand. No one fit the “mama bear” description better than she did. Linda had a smile that came from within and lit up the space around her. A funny lady, that treated me like family, and I will miss her so much. Rest well, Linda - we will see you again in Heaven.
