Linda Jo was a beloved cousin. similar in age, we attended youth group together for years. Drove around the Markle Rootbeer stand(which has since gone) and drank"swamp water" (orange and root beer mix). Trick or Treated together every Halloween in the town of Markle. Grew apart in the past years as our lives evolved into marriages and family. She will always, always have a dear place in my heart.

I did not know Linda and Bob's children but I grew up in the Markle church with Linda as young girls. Linda was always a very quiet girl but if she knew you she would open up and be very chatty. Her faith was solid and quite obvious. To Dennis who knows me I'm so sorry for your loss of both Linda and Bob and im sorry I won't be able to come Saturday but know you and family are in my thoughts and prayers. It is well with their souls. Carol (Redding)Lochtefeld

To All The Family,
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. It is difficult to lose a Mother and Father so close together. I remember your Mom helping Linda and I when we had Holly's graduation from High School. She spent most of the day helping us get things ready and catering this event for our daughters big event. I can remember Bob at the Markle Park and both of them at church. They now reside and are safe in the arms of Jesus. I am sure that my Linda will be greeting them also. May God Bless all of you and give you peace in the month of adjustment that are ahead of you.
In Christian Love
Bruce Myers
