14 condolences for “Linda Epting”

    Our lives were all made richer when Papa brought Linda into them.  She treated us all like family and was quick to tell us how important we were to her.  She formed a reaL bond with my daughter, Kara, who loved her like a Grandmother.  I will never forgot how special she made us all feel.  We are forever blessed to have had her in our lives.  Thank you for sharing her!

    I'm so sorry that we won't be at her service in person, but we will be there in our hearts.

    Thank you all so very much for the lovely condolences.  It means a great deal to hear about the memories others made with our mom.  Words are really inadequate to say how much each line you have written brings her closer to us.  Thank you.

    Carla, Brad, and Dallas,

    I’m David Smoak’s granddaughter, I loved seeing how sweet they were to each other. 

    Your mom talked about y’all all the time. 

    Linda will be missed - especially by my daughter Andie and my niece Addi. She rocked Andie for hours on the porch at the beach when she was just 3 months old.

    I’m sorry for your loss.

    My deepest sympathy to Linda's family and friends in the remembrance of this nice lady who always had a smile and good word for all whom she met.

    I was in South Carolina working at the local Utility and was square dancing with the Tanglefoots Square Dance Club when I met Linda and was adopted into the group that would travel to other SD Clubs to steal their club banners, sometimes five in a row in neighboring counties and North Carolina. As a Square Dance group we all were an extended family of sorts, meeting as a group after work at Lizards Thicket. Sharing pictures of Grands which Linda would proudly pass around to show the group. Linda will be missed by many who knew her but remember always her smile and good friendly nature.

    May she Rest in Peace.

    We are both so sorry to hear that Linda has passed. Linda worked with both of us at Tucker Center and was such a wonderful person to work with. She always had a smile on her face and a happy attitude. I know she loved her family so much and she had such a great love for Mr. Smoak. Hopefully she is back with him again! Happy Birthday in Heaven and Rest In Peace our dear friend.

    I worked with Linda at Tucker, Dowdy Gardner, and back to Tucker. She was a giving person and I will miss her deeply. 

    My sincerest condolences and prayers of peace, comfort and understanding to the entire family.

    I have a feeling there is one more star up in the sky and though it will be far away, its light and warmth will travel to us here on earth to make the night a little less dark.

    There are so many precious memories.

    Love & prayers,

    Karen K

    My deepest sympathy goes out to Linda's family, who she loved with all her heart.  She was so proud of  you and all your accomplishments!   Linda blessed my life for over 30 years as a co-worker and a dear friend.  We spent time together exercising, square dancing, attending church activities, eating, talking  and most of all laughing! As a companion she always made life half as bad and twice as good!

    My deepest sympathy for all the family and friends of this sweet lady.  She loved her family & she showed off her pictures of the grands every chance she got.  She was a longtime member of the Tanglefoots Square & Round Dance Club and I am a Columbia Twirlers member.  We have danced in the same square of eight many times over the years.  She had a great partner on the Square Dance floor in David Smoak over the years.

    We will miss Linda so very much and pray for comfort & peace for all of us.
