This message is on behalf of the Well church, Brussels. We at the Well give thanks for all Linda was and all she gave during her time living in Belgium. Linda made such a difference to the church Leadership Council, the Well staff and Serve the City through her leadership, serving and hospitality. Many lives have been touched and changed thanks to her. She had such a heart for Jesus and always did everything with him in mind. We are thinking now of the family and send our blessings. Although our hearts are sad that she is no longer here, we rejoice that she is in heaven and look forward to seeing her again.

I’m so sorry to hear of Linda’s death. I always thought of her as the perfect military wife. She was so supportive of you and your family & community even attending our meetings in your absence when I didn’t think she felt well. My sympathies to you and your family for your tragic loss.

Linda had a very kind and gentle soul. When I worked with her she was very pleasant and professional. She was a good example of a professional Realtor. RIP Linda

My Sincere condolences to the Harness Family.
Losing a loved one is certainly one of the most difficult things you will have to face. I’m sincerely sorry. Where can you seek comfort? First, continue to comfort each other as you probably already do. Next, this Bible verse is one of my favorite and shows that there’s someone who completely understands your heart ache and that’s our Creator. Psalms 34:18 says: “[God] is close to the brokenhearted;He saves those who are crushed in spirit”
He will take care of you during this time.
