My deepest sympathy to her family.
Linda will forever be a huge part of my heart and spirit. Her friendship has endured from 1962 to the present. Her family was and is still as important as my very own. Life will not be the same without her. I feel so blessed to have had her as a “sister.” Rest in peace my dear friend. Jean Lauer Ralston
Becky and I wish to express our sincere condolences on your loss. You are all in our prayers. May the good Lord offer you solace and peace in your time of need.
Many people will walk in and out of your life but only a true, life-long friend will leave footprints in your heart. Linda was such a friend to me, a pure gift from God. It would fill volumes to record all the adventures and memories we created together as cherished friends. Linda was the triplet with my twin Jean and me. Although she will be separated in distance and time she will never be far away for we will forever be bonded together by joy and love. She will glow forever in many hearts, especially mine. Dear Linda, may you rest in God’s glorious presence forever.
Hold the past and sacred memories close to your heart and never let them go. May your Memories help you through this difficult time. Hugs and Prayers my friend.
