I'll always remember Linda's sweet smile, and warm hugs when we lived in Palatka and attended Peniel Baptist Church several years ago. She was always so kind and caring for others. It was a privilege to serve together in Mission Friends when our children were growing up. She was a blessing to all and will be greatly missed.

Mike, Tyler, Jennifer, Ms. Betty, Mr. John and all her family - praying for you that you find peace and comfort knowing Linda is at perfect peace at her heavenly home with our Lord and Savior. Praise the Lord, we will see her again!

Rebecca and I heard of Mrs. Linda's passing. We pray for you and your family during this difficult time. I know you rejoice she's out of pain and difficulty and into the marvelous Light of Glory, Jesus, yet her absence will require great courage and faith. We pray the richness of God's presence will carry you through. Love, Lester and Rebecca

Linda - My heart hurts that I was not able to be at your side thru this ordeal- from afar I prayed for the Lord to ease your pain.
I am going to miss that sweet smile and kind heart of yours the most. I'll never forget the good times when we were able to visit each other- and the tears we shared over lost loved ones. And, watching your children grow up~ and now their children grow up.
I love the light you carried..and shared with most anyone you met. You touched a lot of lives! I for one am better for it - and promise to carry on passing that light on to others. You were a joy to have known on earth.. and now you will be watching over the family - in Heaven - with those that are already there.
