    I am so sorry for your loss. Linda was a joy to work with, always brought laughter when she called me or talked with me. She loved her grandchildren–would accuse me of costing her money whenever she would be surveying near where they live. Oh how she loved to go to the bull riding rodeos. She has brought joy to heaven I know.

    Linda, such a great spirit. It was great pleasure working with her and the many laughs we shared together. It was so hard for her to say Fruit punch when we would always make our Sonic breaks after work. We would laugh so hard. My symphathy is with you all in your loss of a mother, grandmother, and friend.

    Words cannot express the loss felt at this time. My sympathy goes out to Casey, Adam and those beloved grandchildren that she so adored. I will continue praying for you through such a time of sorrow. I worked with Linda for the last 10 years. She was a joy. My consolation and strength at this time is knowing that she is in a place of comfort and forever loving joy now and that one day we will see her again.
