Linda ,  We were so glad when you, Floyd, and your family joined our family.  We have spent many years of friendship.  We had some very long, private talks.  You and I got along so   well.  I will miss all the good times we had, and not hearing your voice and your laugh.  I hope you have met up with your family and cannot hurt anymore.  You were one in a million!  Take care my friend,  I think you are now in the better place.  Until we see each other again, Rest In Peace!

I don’t think there’s words, or stories, or anything to show people how much we loved each other... There’s no way to explain to people how we spun each other around downstairs, dancing & listening to bluegrass and how we harassed pap to fill up the buggy with gas to drive around the block one more time before dad said it was too dark. Being your Sweetpea for the past almost seventeen years was the best decision of my life. I hope you’re smiling above me. You’re all around me just not able to be seen. I can still feel your love no matter where you are. Wherever you are up above, crack open a Starbucks Frappuccino for me & have the buggy filled with gas for when I get there too. Heaven is so lucky to have you. I love you always. Your Sweetpea

Just not enough words to describe her. A great and wonderful person!! Always there if you needed someone. Someone you could talk to and share, honest and upfront with you. Always will remember her smile and “I love you” when you saw her!! Always got a birthday card from her well into my 50’s. A great person, aunt and friend! Always think they will be there and when they are not you wish you would of spent more time with her.

Linda's kind and caring ways will always be fondly remembered, but it will be her quick smile and contagious laughter that will be missed the most.  We were all privileged to have been touched by her ripple of life. Bonnie and Rich Weidner (Friend and Neighbor)

Aunt Linda, words can never be enough to express the love I have for you.  You were always there for me, you were a wonderful person. You and my mom I'm sure are having a ball catching up right now.  You will be deeply missed and remembered forever. My prayers go out to all of those you left behind.  Love you always, Rhonda
