Linda was a beautiful woman. If anyone truly knew her they would acknowledge that her greatest loves were her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. It was always nice in the Spring to see her garden stocked up with vegetables. she tended to the weeding, watering and harvest. Her home was surrounded with color from the flowers Danny would get for her every Mother's Day to fill up her gardens; perky and colorful. She loved music; rock and roll and some times her Baptist hymns. Her cooking was always tasty and even if we all got on her about using lard. LOL! She could sit for hours and talk about the kids, Danny's kayaking/canoeing days or a concert her and Danny would go and see on the bike. She would light up about a trip to WV to go camping. Yes, she loved her family. She was the salt of the earth. Her heart was big. Her soul spirited. Linda will be missed greatly, but never forgotten. Thank you to her family, friend and co-workers around the area. She spoke you all fondly. God is a loving God. I pray He enjoys her.

Linda was my first cousin, we grew up together. She was like a sister to me. I know we didn't spend time together after we grew we went our separate ways. I would run in to her occasionally we would hug and chat a little. It is hard to write because of tears I will never forget her. My hope for Linda is that she came to know God may she rest in peace.
