LINDA. One of our many neighborhood mothers, a welcoming home with a shining example of faith, hope, and love. I have too many memories to recall in one sitting. Be it swimming, home struggles that landed me in your living room when home was too much to take, and later on,Looking for you every time I voted to get a hug. I have your prayers to thank for my daughters, as it was surely you that spoke to the lord about that water in your pool. And I know I wasn't the only boy of summer to be effected by that little, wink wink nod nod! I for one loved you dearly and always found a word with you enlightening. You will be greatly missed and I hope I can be a fraction as good a mentor in my lifetime. As you were proof that ,of the three gifts to humanity, the greatest is LOVE. Danny Snow

I met Linda in 1984 when we both started attending Hope United Methodist church. We got to know each other through our Sunday school and our daughters attending pre school at Hope Church. She was always loving, kind and would do anything for anyone. I remember when she excepted Jesus as per personal Savior and how much she wanted to know him. She was so hungry for the word and was all in! She lived for the lord and everyone that was blessed to have known her knows where her heart was. She was such a warrior . Now her mission is done here on earth and we will miss her so much but she is now rejoicing in heaven with her lord and Savior. For all of us that have a personal relationship with the lord, we will all be united together again. RIP dear Linda. You have earned your crown!Love youSherrie Christman

I only have known Linda a short time but she is one of the nicest people I know. Always such a sweet calming voice and beautiful smile. Her love for Jesus was so evident. I am thankful that God allowed me to know and be a friend with her.
