Tom and family, so sorry to hear about Linda. I will always remember her great smile and laughter. Linda was one of the first to welcome me to Sunbird and a good friend. We lost track after I left but always have good memories of those I worked with while there. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Please except my sympathy for the passing of your loved one Linda. Is she of the Walker family whom used to live near Bank Street and her brother used to visit Mrs. Haycocks' ofter. I used to live in the apartment in the back of the big house. My name is Tina Landry and I have been thinking about the days of Bank Street and the Walker family.

Here's to a "fireball" in the most positive way. Linda was always on the go and seeking ways to help others. I honestly cannot recall her having a...bad day. I had the great opportunity and joy to work with her during the Sunbird Boat days and will miss her smiling, joyful presence. For those who worked with her we are all a little bit better off for having known Linda.

I am sure Mike would want me to let you know how much he appreciated Linda's cheerful spirit. My heart goes out to you as you go through this time of grief. These two people amazed others with their brave and uplifting attitudes. It was never a burden to be in their company.

Linda always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face. Her strength during these last years has been inspiring. Please know you are in our thoughts and in our prayers Tommy, Dawn & David. Wish we could be there with you.

I was so saddened to hear about Mrs. Alleman's passing. I spoke to her so briefly once on the phone (when she called the St. Marcellus Church Office), without even really knowing her and she sounded like a very loving that I could have been close friends with, if I would have been priviledged to have known her. My prayers and the prayers of St. Marcellus go out to the family. God's Peace to all of you! Ann Boudreaux
