  • Glen, Trish and Jacob Holt says:

    You were always a special person so dear to my heart. I remember growing up you accepted me as one of your own son’s and always introduced me as so. Our love for you will forever be constant and you will be missed terribly. We can only hope that you will be there to guide us from above as you always did aground. Although you are in a better place now, selfishness precedes my thought’s that you were taken away from us way to soon. We love and miss you so much Linda. Rest peacefully. Don’t worry about us, we will do just fine. We will see each other again on another day. Much Love…

  • Sheila Bilyeu says:

    Brilliant, strong and impish to the end, Linda and her beloved husband, Terry, taught me so much about this journey, about priorities and about myself. Those of us blessed to know her can hopefully draw some comfort knowing Linda has been able to depart the pain, and that she is now dancing with the stars. Linda was truly an Angel on this earth, and we can be confident she will never be far from her children, grandchildren, and the man who stood her up against all odds. Rest peacefully kiddo. Your presence will always be felt.
