Linda had such a good heart and kind, quiet spirit. She was so creative while working at Southeast Local Schools. I'm glad that we became friends and glad that she is now free from what her body was holding her back from.

Sending my love and deepest sympathy to those who loved Linda.  Russell you are in my thoughts and sending a huge hug your way.  Although I only knew Linda a short time I felt as if we were dear friends.  I saw her last week and I think she recognized my voice.  She smiled at me.  I will miss her smile and visiting when I go to BrennField.  God bless.  She was a sweetheart.

I enjoyed clogging with Linda in the Cedar Valley Cloggers in the late 1980's and early 1990's.

What a kind, kind angel she was! Always happy. Always doing her best. Always living life to the fullest, yet finding great pleasure in simple things. She was the epitome of the song "Simple Gifts."

‘Tis a gift to be simple, ’tis a gift to be free
’tis a gift to come down where we ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained
To bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed
To turn, turn will be our delight
‘Till by turning, turning we come round right.

‘Tis a gift to be simple, ’tis a gift to be free
’tis a gift to come down where we ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

My sincere condolences to the family and to Russell.
