    I always saw a smile on Linda’s face. She was always up beat. We’ve been friends since the 60’s.. I’m sure when you walked in the pearly gates all your friends were there to see you. I’m sure We will meet again some day. RIP Linda. Have so many find memories. Love you.

    Gerry, Kristin and Michelle, I’m so sorry for the passing of Linda. I thought we’d have so much more time with her! I understood her reasons for saying she had enough. We never saw what she went through, we saw her looking beautiful all of the time! She was a first class lady!! I look forward to the day when we meet again! Linda, I love you so much! You are the sweetest person I’ve ever known! Enjoy meeting your family, friends, the Lord!!

    Michele, Jay, Kris, Kevin and family. Words will never express the heartache I have for all of you and this unbearable grief. Your mothers heart was that of gold, so loyal and genuine. Her family meant so much to her and it was obvious. I loved listening and laughing to Michele’s stories about what Mom & Dad were up to. I really enjoyed getting to know Linda personally and learning about her walk with God. She truly has a beautiful soul. We were all blessed to have her in this world. She fought a great fight. Now I’m sure she is helping paint Heaven. May you all find comfort and peace with each other. Some day soon, I hope you all will be able to reminisce and smile again like you did in the moment. Much love and prayers, Kelli Dettmer (Banville)

She always lifted up the people around her and made one feel so special. She was my hero and taught so much about life, love, forgiveness and God. She will be missed more than words can express yet will always be carried in our hearts.
