Tom and extended family,
I was so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. I was a friend from way back but have kept in touch. Last spoke to her by email the end of May after I moved to Montana. Loved her like a sister when I met her in Germany. She was a bright star as friends went. God bless you all.

I am so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. She was a real trooper and had a great attitude about everything. I am going to miss hearing from her and it is as a part of my heart has been taken away as one of my classmates has gone on before me. God bless you all.

Tom and extended family:
I am sorry to hear of Linda's passing; she fought a valiant fight against "Calvin Cancer" and I sorry she had to suffer so much.
I am a MVHS classmate. I know she is missed by those family members left to grieve.
