Our family has lost a special person. Our hearts are heavy. Linda brought joy to each of us. Family picnics, reunions, parties, etc., she was the "official greeter"-never forgetting a face or name and stories to tell.
As children we played together a lot: games, cards, piano, skating down the sidewalk and always walking to the Dairy Queen. She would say to same some ice cream so we could put nutmeg on it when we got back to the house.
Linda, thanks for the memories, love you, and miss you already!

I was sad to read of Linda's passing. She was always a joy to be around her. I feel very lucky to have known her known her. I use to help her when I worked at Vantage Point. All of her family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Linda and I spent many good times together and I have many fond memories of her and her loving family. She loved to go to Wal-Mart and to eat out with me and it was always just as much fun for me! God is with her. My prayers are with Carl and Pat, Byron and Marilyn and families.

When I drove for T.A.T.S (Lamar taxi)I was fortunate to have Linda in my car many times throughout the years. She was always excited to be going to places and doing things. We are about the same age and we went through the "old" stages together. I missed her when she moved away.

I always enjoyed helping Linda when she would come to the drugstore. She was also a good neighbor. She is in a better place and my prayers are with her family at this time.
