I remember Linda as a fiesty teen with a passion for life. I was her sister in law and shared many great times with her. She was a very caring person and I witnessed the care she gave to her Mother and Brother when they were ill. There is no doubt they flourished in her care. May God welcome her in his glorious home.

I never saw anyone fight cancer like my friend of 56 years Linda did. She was such a caring person, with so much love to give.Linda loved her family so much,she spoke so much of how proud she was of her children and how much she loved her husband and her grandchildren and we shared funny stories. Thank you my friend for all the memories, I will hold them and you in my heart forever.Love you Linda and miss you!

Linda gave cancer a real fight clear to the end. She touched so many lives with her presence and will be missed by all. What can we say about our beach vacation buddy of 11 years other than we will cherish all those dear memories of her at the beach and of all the laughs we had together in our hearts forever. Save us a beach chair my friend for when we met again. Love ya! Carol and Vince Triola
