Aunt Linda was a very special person in my life. I remember the summer I spent with them when I was in high school. She always had a positive attitude and she never said anything negative about anyone. I will miss her.

Dearest Aunt Linda - You have inspired me my whole life. Your wit and laughter brightened up the whole room. Your kindness towards all you encountered was sincere and truly lifted spirits. I loved surprising you with visits and loved the laughter that you and Uncle Bobby shared with me. More so when Nathan was enduring years of physical trials, your notes would arrived in the mail at just the right times. Special notes included you had also lite a candle for him. I felt your strength and knew you remembered me in prayer always. Heaven is abounding with joy with your arrival. I miss you already. With many loving hugs, susie

I am honored to have been able to get to know you these last two years, you are a beautiful lady. I will miss our lunch conversations, and seeing you at your favorite games. I hope you are up there showing them how to play “Kelly’s crazy poker” and filling up that nickel jar. Until we meet again!

Miss Linda;
You were the sweetest lady, I will never forget when my family and I move and you came over to welcome us. So many great memories and even when we have not been neighbors for a while, we still had time for each other. Endless bags of cereal for my kids and endless hugs. I will never forget you Miss Linda.

When I was little summers were spent with Mende's and always enjoyed my time there. She was a caring and loving woman, remember our drives in her Volkswagen beetle. Down the streets.
