I am so sorry to hear of your prayers go out to your family. Linda was a very sweet and funny lady. I met her at my sons elementary school where she was the Kitchen Manager and she couldn't be sweeter! She loved the kids there, it showed in the care she took in preparing their meals. She will be missed...!

It was a beautiful service today to honor you and your life! I am so thankful you picked Stacy and I to be "your girls". You taught us so much. I will miss cooking and laughing together, and sitting together talking and sharing memories. We will watch over Willie for you. This is not goodbye but see you later...

Miss Linda loved the staff and students at Mountain View and shared her passion for cooking with us all. I loved hearing about her family and remember when she brought Willy to school to show him off. She was so proud of that little guy. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family!

I thank God for her love and friendship and the joy she brought to my life--- if only for a little while...I was blessed to call her "friend". May God bless her family and friends in their time of sorrow, and may He hold them closely to Him and fill them with His peace.
