Linda was one of a kind. Even during her long battle with Alzheimers disease, her sweet smile and kind heart always shined through. Ill never forget the frequent visits she would make into my office on Willow neighborhood to offer assistance with the paperwork on my desk or to come give me a hug. She was so spunky, funny, ornery and most of all loving. I loved watching her light up when Joe Wendy & Emma came to visit. You all handled her fight with the disease so well. You are all amazing people and will forever be on my heart and mind. It was an honor to care for your sweet Linda and Ill forever remember her as one of my favorite residents. May your wonderful memories bring you comfort during this difficult time I will be sure to make a donation in her name as requested.

Im so sorry for your loss. I have such good memories of your mom, my aunt. She taught me to roller skate and taking time with me when I would be at the house on Waterloo, before she was married.
Mark was the ring bearer at my first wedding and if memory serves me correctly, Aunt Linda had the measles or some sickness that kept her from the wedding. Love and prayers for you all.
