I am so saddened to hear of Linda's passing. Members of Little River Dominick Presbyterian Church were my church family in the summers of my youth, and Linda such a kind and patient woman. My heart goes out to all of you, and I am so sorry for your loss.

We were very sad to hear the news of Linda's passing. Although we have not been around over the past years, both of us still feel that all members of LIttle River Dominick are family and very close friends. Linda was one of the kindest persons that we know. I know that she will be so very missed by both her family and all of her friends. Johnny, all of you are in our prayers.

Johnny, children,grandc hildren - I was shocked and sadden to read of Linda's death. She was such a warn and gentle spirit as I remember the years we worked together for the school district and her coming to Reuben for various activities for the children. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I would like to share with you a promise found in God's word that has brought me comfort and peace during times of grief and I hope it will bring you comfort as you deal with the most difficult thing you will have to deal with living in this world. When you are up to it, please read our loving Creator's promise at Isaiah 25:19. You have my deepest sympathy.

Johnny, Julie (Tim & Girls), Allen (& Michael),Leslie , Joanne (& Family), and Jackie (Sam & Family),

I don't even know where to begin, or what to say. My heart is truly breaking for each of you, as well as for Mama & me as well. Linda was so many things to so many people. She was truly one of a kind and a wonderful Christian lady in the way she lived her life and the way she impacted others. She always treated Mama as still a member of her family and ya'll will NEVER know how much that meant to both Mama and me. She loved being known as "Granny" to Allen and Leslie, as well as to Julie. Mom was truly honored to be a member of your family and so enjoyed being with everyone at all the birthday parties and dinners at Julie & Tim's house, and the even bigger celebrations held at the lake. We are all going to miss her and her kind, compassionate ways. We are all still family and are here for you when you need us. Trust in God, and hold on to your Faith and all the wonderful memories you each have. Heaven has truly gained a VERY special Angel.

Love & Prayers to all of you !!
Kim & Ashleigh
Breanne, Jeremy & Aubree

What a wonderful kind, sweet, intelligent educator and friend to our faculty at Boundary Street School and such a wonderful gift to the many special needs children she touched. Always had a cheerful personality and really a true Christian lady. Will be missed by the Boundary family but you will always hold a place in our hearts. Thanks for your inspiring life you witnessed to us and the children.
