I worked with Linda and will miss her lovely personality and kind ways. Condolences to the family and friends.

I am so very sorry and shocked to hear of Linda's death. I had sadly lost touch since she moved to the Canton area.
Prior to that, I had done a lot of cat sitting for her. She and I were friends for many years, having met at the Chapel in Akron in 1992. We had many Bible studies together and then were in and out of each others lives over the years. I will always remember her very fondly and wish that I could have been there for her at the last.
She was a very thoughtful and caring person. She did indeed love the Lord and want to please Him. And I know she did.
I remember that she cared very much about her family. I am so very sad that she is gone.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Linda but praising God she is with our Savior. We will be thinking and praying for each of you Sunday.
