I am sorry we lost a beautiful person inside and out. She was always a true friend and was so kind to everyone she met and worked with.
We had a great group of us who would have a great time with each other in St. Louis. I will dearly miss her.

I knew Linda as a little girl in Hoffman Estates. One day we were walking home from Fairview School & Linda invited me over to her home for a snack-a big piece of cake & milk! She was so sweet & I really enjoyed playing with Barbie dolls with her! Linda had the most beautiful hair & eyes & the BEST smile! A Beautiful Soul!

Dear Ron and Randy,
I’m so sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. The beautiful childhood memories of playing by her side are endless. From sleep outs in the backyard to playing with barbies for hours on end, she was a great friend and someone I always respected and looked up to. She’ll always be remembered, as well as your special parents.
