Hearing Evelyn’s remark about ‘Last Minute Linda’ in the eulogy yesterday reminded me of the time she decorated a wedding cake for me just hours before the wedding after my sister, who was planning to do it, came down with the flu. Thank goodness for people like Linda!
She will be so very much missed.

I am so sorry to hear about Linda’s passing. She was an amazing lady. Linda was such a kind person and ohhhh that laugh (it makes me smile just thinking about it). I have always admired her and was so proud she was my cousin. Although we lost touch for many years I am so glad we had reconnected. I just wanted to let you know my thoughts and my prayers are with you all through this heartbreaking time.

From: Glenys (Robertson )Larocque

fond early memories of my cousin and I remember the day when visiting her dad (my Uncle Boof) and watching her paint her nails getting ready to go out with Walter. I was just s kid. Loved her laugh. Just a fond memory .

Sincere condolences are sent to you. Such a stressful time can only be softened by pleasant memories and we’re sure you have many of those. Linda always offered a pleasant “hello” or a hearty laugh…
