Dear Charles, Scooter, Byron and Kim,
I'm am so sad to hear that Linda has passed away.
Y'all were such good friends to our family & Linda was especially so welcoming when we moved to Chandalar many moons ago. Linda was an ideal neighbor and friend and such a true southern lady.
Thinking and praying for all of you today. ❤

I was deeply saddened and shocked to learn of the passing of Linda Dixon. Having been friends for many years living in Pelham, Al. we often saw and visited Linda and Charles. All with good memories especially reminiscing about the two trips we took together; Tahiti and Hawaii.
Our children went to school together and were friends although time and distance often separates those once close acquaintances.
Linda and Charles were very hospitable in our neighborhood.
Linda was always very supportive when my first wife(JoAnn) had her many hospital visits. My last correspondence with Linda was a card at Christmas after I had announced that I had remarried after loosing my first wife eleven years earlier. She was very supportive and happy for us in our new life together. I just wish that Helen could have met Linda and Charles and come to learn the wonderful people you are.
Both Helen and I want to extend our deepest symphony to the Dixon family and we will keep you in our thought and prayers.
