    I am so sorry for your loss we had great times playing softball going to the bars and drinking after games us old ladies knew how to play. I will miss her smile the most. She always had a smile no matter how bad things did get . Until the end God took away every sweet thing she had only to give it all back when she arrived home and she is home with her father. She so earned her wings . I will miss you Linda .

    Linda & I were best friends for over 40 years! She was the sister I had always wanted. We had so many good times together and will cherish those memories. I loved her and will miss her so much. I was thinking a lot of her this holiday season. She will always have a special place in my heart.

    Linda touched the lives of so many young people through her coaching! She was our volleyball and softball coach when we were young and, most importantly, she taught us how to be a team player. I’ll never forget her wonderful smile and sense of humor. God bless and prayers to the family.

    Feeling so sad to hear of Linda’s passing. We had many summers of fun growing up together. Way back when we were teenagers. All the neighbor hood kids would hangout at the Morton park swimming pool all summer long. Our prayers are with you Linda, and to all of the family and friends.
