Dearest Linda,
You finished your job God had for you here on earth, so he called you home.

My feelings are deep and it's hard for me to express them.

When I sit outside I always look at the clouds and see what each one resembles, I will be watching for you and we can give each other a wave

I will miss you
Love Aunt Marion

Dearest Linda,

I sit here remembering how every Christmas the whole family would meet at gramdmas apartment and us kids would go into the little room and search for the tin of grandma's delicious homemade christmas cookies .

And the good times at the annual St
Johns bazaar when all of us would be running one of the booths

Our family has suffered a great loss now, you are not here with us physically, but you are always in our hearts and thoughts and you are now one of the families guardian angels.

Will miss you, save some grandmas Christmas cookies for me.

John, I cry as I write this, Linda will be truly missed, we are 15 hours away by car , but remember only a phone call away if your need anything
Love cousin Alice

Dearest Linda,

I could write a book about all the fun times we had together (Jimmy Byrnes, Petey Della’s, Coney Island, and all our other crazy adventures), but then there would be no space left for anyone else to write.

I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that you are gone. I’m going to miss you. I’m glad we had the chance to make so many wonderful fun-filled memories together. You will always have a special place in my heart (but you already knew you had a special place in my heart-who else could call me by that endearing nickname you gave me and get away with it).

Until we meet again... Save me a cold one!

Love Ya Kiddo,

Sue & John

My Dear Cousin Linda,

I wish you didn’t have to leave us so soon.

I will always cherish all the memories we shared.

When we got to visit a few years back in Marietta, it reminded me so much of how it was when we were young, growing up, and all lived in Greenpoint. When we all went out to dinner together, we talked and laughed for hours. Later you took us back to see the lovely house that you and John made your home. Then we got to take those wonderful silly pictures on your garden tractor and later you reminisced with us about your dad with a smile on your face and tears running down your cheek. Those and the many other memories of the good times our families shared are priceless and will remain in my heart forever.

It was always in my plans to make another trip to Marietta to see all of you again. It still is, but it will not be the same without you and your smiling face.

Like everyone whose life you touched, I wish we could have more of those special times together.

My heart hurts for you John. You and Linda shared a beautiful loving bond, you were always inseparable. Aunt Dorothy, words cannot say enough. I wish I could reach out and hug you right now. And to all the family, I wish I could be there with you through this time.

God bless you my dear sweet cousin. Say hi to your dad. We miss him so much too.

So long for now.

Miss you.

Love,
Your Cousin Pat and Bob

To Our Deariest Niece Linda

Words cannot begin to express our sorrow. You left us way too soon.

We remember the day you were born as if it was yesterday. You were a beautiful baby who grew up to be the most kind, gentle and loving person. We have a lot of great memories of the times we shared together.

These warm memories will remain in our hearts forever.

We will love you always,

Aunt Ethel and Uncle Dennis

To Linda's Family:

On behalf of the accounting staff at Rayloc/HVPG, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to your family. We have celebrated many years working side by side with one tough cookie. Linda was always someone we could count on to be there when we needed her. She was very outspoken and maintained a heart of gold. She was always excited to participate in our annual Halloween cubicle decorating contest and always came prepared with great ideas and candy---which she readily gave out to everyone throughout the year. We will miss her smiling face at the office and her "Brooklyn" ways. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of her life in so many ways.

Sincerely,
JoAnna Salinas

To Linda's Family:
We at Rayloc Marketing will miss Linda a great deal! Her generosity and enthusiastic around the holidays and any event that we had was wonderful. She would always make sure we had something to display on our desk so she would be kind enough to bring us a ornament or item that represented the holiday.
I pray that God will surround the family with peace that only he can give you all and the comfort to know that Linda's spirit of love for each of you will be in your hearts forever.

Our hearts are broken. You left us too young. I have such wonderful childhood memories which followed us into our adulthood. We may not have seen each other often or spoke all the time, but when we did it was as if no time had lapsed. You were funny, a jokestor like you dad, and a very kind and loving person.

You will live forever in those memories and in our hearts. Until we meet again.

Your cousins, Kathy and Philip
