I met Linda my first day at Millis Rd and remained friends for the rest of school. She was so kind to me and my shyness. We were both new but Linda made it all okay.

So sorry, Chad. Your mom will be missed by many that have know her kindness.

Linda will always leave a place in my heart. She was beautiful inside and out. She had a heart of gold. I have great memories with her that I thank God for. We will miss you Linda but will see you again one day. Love you

This is hard for me to accept, losing one of my best and truest friends in life.
We met in junior high school in Jamestown and from that day until today and forever more I love her.
Linda never met a stranger and loved every animal God put on this earth. She even made me feel guilty about one of the activities I grew up doing, hunting.
Once the local High Point Enterprise newspaper published an article about her pet squirrel Rocky who would come from the woods when Linda called his name. She would feed Rocky nuts out of her hand. She even left her sliding door to the deck ajar for him to help himself to nuts she placed just inside for him.
Heaven has gained a true angel who looked after God’s critters while living in this realm here on Earth.
Rest In Peace my sweet friend until I see you again.

In Loving Memory,

Linda played a huge part of my life from a child into a young man. From her famous grilled cheese sandwiches to playing pictionary in the den. Linda and I probably attended every Disney movie released in the 90's lol. She will forever hold a place in my heart and will always be missed.

Theres not a word in this world that can explain how amazing this woman will forever be. My entire childhood from birth is consumed with the love she gave to my mom, brother and I. My heart is in pieces but I'm more at peace remembering all the times we shared because blood doesnt make family you taught us that Love did . As a confused child you loved me anyways and being with you, Aaron and mama at the same time my world felt whole. From us just digging in the attic to me hiding under the downstairs steps to pool parties and the 5am wake up calls in the suburban that you made a bed in the back for us to sleep on the way to see the hot air balloons. My love for you will always be and my son will know the type of woman I was so blessed to have as a child. Thank you God for allowing this beautiful soul to always be in my heart.
