My condolences to Linda’s family. We used to ride the bus together way back when. She was a sweet person who recently reached out to me after the death of my brother, one of her classmates. I’m very sorry for your loss.

Linda will certainly be missed by everyone who knew her. She was a regular member of the monthly "Valley Girls" lunches and we miss her already. Don and family - our sincere sympathies to all of you. Carol and Joe

Linda was a sweetheart. We were student nurses together and kept in touch throughout the years. She was a caring person and will surely be missed.

My Condolences to the Anderson family. I worked with Chad and Kristy and in my conversations with Linda she was caring and supportive of her family. My thoughts are with you at this time.

Linda was a classmate and a friend. She was a very caring, sweet person. We could use more people like her in this world, not fewer. My heart goes out to you, her family. She will be greatly missed by many.

I was so sad to hear about Linda's passing. She was always so nice in high school. Although we didn't keep in touch, it sounds like she was a terrific person and friend to everyone she met.

My sincere condolences to Linda's family. We went to school together and you could always count on her. She will be missed
The angels have her now.

Mike Johncox from Whitesburg, Tennessee on Jul. 5, 2023

Don and family, We are saddened by Aunt Linda’s passing. Linda was probably my first childhood playmate as we were only 5 years apart. I’d spend almost every weekend up at the farm as a kid. Plenty of good memories growing up around her and Ginny.

Glad I came up for our last visit back in April. Love you all

Marie Davis from Clifton Springs ny on Jul. 6, 2023
