  1. Denice and Devin, Ours prayers are with you at this time, I know that all the good memories and days you shared with your Mom will help you through the tuff days ahead. She was Quite a lady, I am sure you know by all the friends she had. I just saw her three weeks ago and with all that was going on with her, she had that smile and a hug for me. I just wanted to tell you how I met your Mom, yes it was on a soccer field, I had just signed up for a Ladies Soccer team some 30 years ago (didn’t know what I was getting into) and after a few practices we were ready for the first big game. Here I am running like I didn’t know I could and this lady comes up behind me and takes the ball from me, and somehow I ended up flat on my butt! I sat there in a daze, wondering what the heck, and I look up and she is scoring a goal! That bruised more then my butt to say the least! Then she came back and apologized and helped me up! From there we begin a friendship, not a close one but one where we always had a Hi and a Hug and how are you doing kind. I will always remember her smile, her laugh and her love of life. She will be missed by all. Jackie Keys

  2. Linda was one of the most special people that I have ever known. I had such high respect for her intelligence and jealousy of her outgoing personality and quick wit. She befriended everyone she met and in return, had so many loving friends. Her death will leave a large void in my life. My deepest condolences to her wonderful family and her many friends. I will miss her dearly.

  3. I have so many fond memories of my friendship with Linda. She lived her life and Loved her Family and Friends to the fullest. I am so Thankful that Linda was in my Life. My Sincere Condolences to Linda`s Family and to everyone who had the privilege to be Loved by Her.

  4. Dear Denice, Devin and Families, I was sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I only met your mother a few times; most recently at the fundraiser this past summer. The outpouring of love for your mother (not to mention the attendance) at the fundraiser was amazing. It was very evident that she held a special place in so many peoples’ lives. You will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Sincerely, Margaret Wehbi Gunners Soccer Team

  5. My fondest memory of Linda was August 6, 1966 (except for our High School years, together. That day I married Mike Bowman. She was so happy to be in my wedding, along with Sue Meyers, Melissa Prieffer. I also babysit Denice when she was a baby and Linda had to work. I\’m so sorry we lost contact over the last few years. I Loved Linda she was ALWAYS there for me in are teenage hard times. My prayers are with all of you in this time of sadness.
