Linda, you and I have done so much together for 51 years,so many good memories of the our trips together. We sure did alot of them. Then both of us talked our men into getting a new camper,we sure did enjoy camping together,especially In the Amish country in Pennsylvania. You were always there for me when I lost two special men in my life. I always thought of you as a sister instead of a sister-in-law. I will miss you and keep you in my heart foever. Love you Linda Lee.

Uncle Larry and family,
Richie and I send our condolences to you all. We were heart broken to hear the news.
I will miss Aunt Lindas posts on fb about her Grandkids and kids. You could tell she loved them very much. And that she was very proud of them.
We send our love to everyone. Prayers for everyone as well.
Love Richie and Donna.

Larry you can be so proud of Linda, She had a beuatiful soul. In 2001 during a time when my Mom was dying of brain cancer - Linda and Millie stepped in with such love and care for a lady they did not know. When ever Linda was caring for her we as a family knew she was under wonderful care. We have thought of her often, she will be missed. In fact I do believe when Mom died our wonderful care giver showed up with a box of donuts, she truly cared.

Please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. She is now with her loving and caring heavenly father. We thank you for sharing her.
