I miss you Auntie Linda. You were very much like a sister to me, being so close in age. I will always cherish all the memories. You gave me so many it could fill a library!! You also gave me an appreciation for music and dance that will live on forever. You taught me how to play a guitar and I still play that and my viola. I am forever grateful to you for making my life complete. I still listen to The Monkees and cannot help but smile and cry at the same time when I play their records. Cedar Creek, doing the "Limbo", playing on the "Slip n Slide", "Auntie Grizelda", "Bbbb bird is the word, "Wooly Bully" and "Leader of the Laundromat", to name a few..I will not forget the songs you used to play while the grownups were away. May God hold you safe in His Arms dear Linda, until the day we meet again. I love you "Auntie Lea". I have attached a recent picture of me and my daughter, Michelle, taken in July 2023 in Temecula, CA. You would be so proud of her, just as I am. She just moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico a few days ago (August 2023) to go back to college, on a paid Scholarship!!! My how time passes so quickly

Rest dear one. You were a mentor and a friend. Now you can fish anytime you want. To your family and friends my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Wow, the sound suddenly started working and I was able to sing along with all of you and hear the wonderful readings and stories about Linda!!! She was always such a thrill to be around--so cheerful, fun, and full of life and love. She made a difference in the atmosphere around her, and found tremendous joy in simple things (like singing, dancing, all-you-can-eat shrimp, scary movies...and so much more. Thanks for sharing those stories!!!) I didn't know Linda played the drums but I am somehow not surprised. She really knew how to enjoy life, and love others well. It's exciting to think about the ways Linda's spirit will impact our lives in the years ahead. I am so grateful that I could watch the service online. It was great to join in and celebrate Linda's life. And it will be a total blast to see her wailing on the drums in heaven. (You know she's in the band.) LOVE YOU AUNT LINDA, XOXO Anne

Linda was a beautiful woman with a heart full of empathy and care for others. I only knew her through Don and Roberta on several weeks at cabins, but she was always ready to share her life and her joy! May she rest in eternal peace--returning home to her loving mother and father.
