My thoughts have been with your family and friends. Linda will be missed by many and you all have wonderful memories about her, hold on to them.
One that I have. Linda was ready and game for a adventure even if it was out of her comfort zone. We went on a long, wet {rained most of the way} trail ride and ending with a camp over. There must of been ten of us riding horses and taking turns in the wagon. Linda was a good sport about it all and yes very fashionable. When it was time for bed she comes out of her tent in her dry, long flannel night gown looking great. I think she was the warmest and dryest of us all.
Linda was a lot of fun and will be missed.

As a classmate of Linda's, most of my memories are from school. Having last names starting with "H" we were in home rooms together. She always rolled her eyes or quietly made a comment which made me start to laugh and of course the teacher would say, "do you want to share what is so funny Miss Hammond?" My answer was "no" and to this day I can still see Linda's hand over her mouth, eyes wide open and faintly saying "I'm sorry", a few times. One thing I used to tell her after class...………."you say you're sorry, but your eyes are laughing!" And they were. Linda had a positive attitude, was a real sweetheart and fun to be around. If you would like to see some comments from her classmates on fb you can visit Wareham High School Class of 1966. I know she will be missed. Linda, may you Rest in Peace.

As one of Linda's classmates, I remember her as a happy-go-lucky, care free, sweet person. She always had a smile for anyone, and will brighten up the heavens. My sincere sympathies to her family and friends.

I’m so very sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. As children we were neighbors in the Riverside area of Onset. I have fond memories of playing dolls in Linda’s upstairs bedroom. I recall my doll was a Betsy Wetsy with a layette handmade by my great-grandmother. Linda and I were very attentive “mothers”.
My deepest sympathy to her family and friends who have lost her much too soon.

Linda was not my biological grandmother but she definitely made me feel like I was! She was the worlds most caring, sweetest woman this world could ever have. I definitely loved/love her like she was my grandmother. She will be deeply missed and I will be thinking about her everyday.

I am shocked and saddened to hear that Linda had died. The last time I saw her was 2 yrs ago at the dental office where she visited with myself, Diane, and Dr. Boccalini. It was like a reunion. Linda was one of those people who lit up a room and made her presence known with her sparkly personality and always fashionable appearance. She was one of the good ones. Full of life and eager to have a conversation. She said some very kind words to me that day, gave me a hug and a big smile. I will always remember her like that. My heart goes out to her family. Please know that I am thinking of you all and missing Linda.

It was a pleasure to get to know Linda and the Crump family over the past few months. What a beautiful person inside and out. Linda inspired me to always do my best, to love and enjoy life to the fullest. Her laughter was full of grace and we had many. My thoughts and prayers to the Crump family. May Peace and Tranquility come into your lives.
Always, Bea
