Linda will be deeply missed by all who knew her. My prayers of Gods comfort are with the Allen family. She made me feel right at home on my first trip away from home in Lake Havasu. Fishing with her was a great memory that I will always have. She was most kind hearted in every way. I am sorry for your loss. May God comfort you in this tough time.

I want to say Thank All who were present at my Moms' service and potluck after. The turn out was great and so many people helped out.
This was so very sudden and shortly after Mildred, my Dads' Mother passed. I wish I would have been able to talk with everyone that was there. It seemed the busier I was, the better off I would be. I know, Our entire family, Colleena, Gary, Larry and my Dad, appreciate everything. We all know no words and no actions will make the pain go away, but we know you all are thinking of us.
Sincerely HOPE

Dear Allen Family,

I am sad for the loss of Linda. She had a way of making me feel special whenever I was trying to help her. Her kind words and fond stories of her children and grandchildren were always so heartwarming. She glowed when she spoke of all of you. We will all miss her deeply.
Godspeed Linda.

Thinking of you at this sad time and wishing all of you well. Linda was one of the "cool" cousins when we were young and I always admired her quiet strength. I will miss her.
