  1. My deepest sympathies to Linda’s family and friends. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I never had the pleasure of knowing Linda in personal. I met Linda through our mutual interest in genealogy on the website I sent her a “Thank You” message for sponsoring a young friend’s mother’s memorial page. She turned right around, browsed through some of my listings and sponsored the memorial of my 1st Childhood friend. She never knew my friend’s mother, she didn’t know me and she didn’t know my 1st childhood friend. But, she was compelled through her love of genealogy to sponsor the memorials of so many people that she only knew by what had been written about their lives. She loved everyone whether she knew them or not. She was truly giving and kind in all ways. What a grand lady! She will truly be missed and always remembered. Rest In Peace, Dear Linda.
