Dave and family, I was so saddened to hear about Linda. It's been a long, long time since I saw any of you, and she was just the little younger sister back then. It sure sounds like she was a wonderful gal, and I am sorry I didn't get to know her as an adult.

Dave and family,
I was shocked when brother Gary told me Linda passed away. I will always be thankful for all of the fun times our families shared. Linda was such a fun woman and I am sorry she left this earth so soon. Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

I am so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. What I know for sure is how much Linda loved her family and how proud she was as an aunt, a sister and a sister-in-law. She will be missed.

Dear Dave and Family,
I am so saddened to hear about Linda, her and I rode the bus together for many years and had many laughs on that long bus ride to Elkhart. I got to see her again at one of the class reunions and she was still as sweet then as she always was. My prayers and thoughts are with you all, it is truly a big loss.
