I am so sorry to hear that Linda passed away. I found this very sad news out today when my friend visited Linda's store. Linda was one of the sweetest, hard working, helpful woman that I knew. I've been shopping in her store for so many years and I feel as if she was a friend. Please accept my love and deepest sympathy to all Linda's family.
Linda will be missed by so many. I will
continue to shop in Linda's dream store. 💜Ellen

I met Linda years ago where she was working in a small children's store, not Just A Dream, before she became the owner of her own store. I purchased a rocking chair from her and she said she could no longer get them and this was the last one she had. I then began a hunt which she had no idea about.

A few weeks later I stopped in and gave her a list of rocking chair suppliers. That was our beginning and it never ended. I cannot tell you how many rocking chairs I have purchased at Just A Dream and the last one I ordered is ready to be picked up. Even as tired as she was she helped me order that chair. So it was her first and last chair I purchased from my most wonderful friend.

I cry as I type this...and as much as Linda loved hearts and many I gave her as gifts my dearest friend will remain in my heart forever. She cannot be replaced nor should she because it cannot happen.

Her family means just as much to me and I hope we will always stay in touch. I know my dear friend Linda would want that to happen.

Linda began as a customer in 1998 & over the years, became a dear, dear friend. I have never met a kinder, more generous, loving, or thoughtful soul. I will miss her terribly.
