  7. Linda and I grew up together. We had many adventures and our fondest was spending time at our Grandparent’s in Pillsbury. We had many stories to tell. Later on we both went our separate ways but periodically saw each other. The connection always was their and when we did see each other it was like we were never apart. I loved my Linda and she loved me. She was a very kind and caring person. I was very happy to be able to see her this last fall and great full that I could be with her one more time. I send my sympathies to her lovely family and am happy she is finally at peace. I also want to thank Doug for his over the top care of her and his total devotion. May God bless all of you!!!!

  8. So sorry to hear this. I lived next door to Linda and the kids when she was married to Larry. She and I would sit on her deck and sun it up and had many good visits.
    My prayers go out to Linda’s family.

  9. I am so sorry to hear of your huge loss. I worked with Linda at Goldmark and she became like a second mother to me. Linda is an amazing lady who would do anything for anyone. The many memories shared together and countless life lessons she taught me will never be forgotten. I have never known someone to be as strong as Linda. Although she was up against many battles for many years she never stopped smiling or caring about everyone. I am glad she doesn’t have to fight or suffer any longer! The love that she has for everyone of her friends and family members should live on with us all forever. A work day didn’t pass where I didn’t get a prideful ‘update’ from Linda about Jess or Spike or any of her grandkids. She was so proud of all of you. Take care!
