    I only met Linda a couple of times but I knew she was a beautiful lady by the example of her daughter that I knew, Tammy. Linda had to have been a wonderful influence on her children and grandchildren. They did her proud. I know she will be missed every day. Love to you all. Pat

    Linda was our neighbor for years. Hate to hear she are no longer with us. I know she will be missed by her family. My heart goes out to all of her family especially Tammy and Todd. No one can replace your Mom ( or Dad ). May God give you peace.
