  5. Linda was the dearest of friends and I will miss her always. My thoughts and prayers go out to David, Isobel, Pat, Dorie and the rest of the family. I know this is a tough time for you now and hope the thought that Linda is out of pain is some form of consolation. We have dear, lovely and funny memories of Linda to remember her by until we meet again.

  6. My Dear Friend Linda, I will miss you so much as you have been a wonderful neighbor that was directly across the street from us for the 30+ years that we have lived here. I will NEVER forget when you got up and spoke the wonderful kind words about my wife at her funeral just three years ago. That proved to me and my daughter Courtney what we already knew about the gentle caring person that you are. I know my dear Elvie was there with open arms to greet you in heaven. We will all be together again someday. Until then I’m going to miss you very much. Your friend, Chris.

  7. May you find peace in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You will be truly missed by your family and friends!
