Our 🙏 are with all of the family.

Linda’s light shone through especially when she talked about her family. We love that beautiful smile and the twinkle in her eyes.

Our prayers and heartfelt sympathy go out to your family over the loss of Linda. She was always so much fun and such a pleasure to be around. Floyd and I have such fond memories of our dinner outings, weekend get aways and trips to the beach. Linda’s kindness and effervescent personality will always be remembered. We were blessed to have had her as a friend.

I loved Linda's laugh and big smile. Loved when we went river rafting and David was bumped out of the raft; he thought Linda had jumped in to save him, but she had been bumped out too and just climbed on his head and shoulders under water to get back in the raft. We had so many good laughs.

Rest in peace precious lady, our hearts are broken to lose you.

I am so very sorry to hear about the passing of Linda. May the memories and love be a comfort to her family and friends at this very difficult time. I knew Linda most of the time I have lived in the neighborhood. When my husband passed away, she came over and told me we were going to start walking together and we did, several times a week, for a period of time. I am grateful for that time. She adored her family! She will be missed!

I had the pleasure of meeting Linda through my dear friend, her sister, Karen. Linda worked with us at our law firm and from the very onset, was a bright light in our midst. Linda was always upbeat and a compassionate and caring person with whom I connected with immediately. Long after her short tenure at our law firm, I continued to spend time with Linda through events I shared with Karen. Later, I met David, and Andrea and Emily, her beautiful family. Linda's legacy will live on in her generosity and zest for life. She will always be remembered and her memory will live on. Love to her dear family....Mike and I were lucky to have known her.

I had the pleasure of meeting Linda many years ago. Her vibrant and upbeat personality made people around her happy. She always talked about her family and her love for her daughters and husband was clear to anyone who knew her. My heart breaks for Andrea, Emily, David, and the rest of the family. May the Lord Jesus give you strength to go through this difficult time. Love, Laura
