I am saddened to hear of the passing of one of the best teachers I ever had. If not for your support Linda, I would never have made it to achieve my GED. Thank you also for encouraging me to follow my dreams. I also appreciate the kind friendship you gave to me after I finished my education. I have to say that nobody like you has ever existed in this world. I will miss you and I will miss your guidance. Rest now knowing that you were a part of teaching me math which was not an easy thing to do.
Brent and Family

We will miss, Linda, our friend and neighbour. She was always cheerful, loved life and shared her smiles. She was truly a fine lady.

Brent and family,

So sorry for your loss. From our infrequent meetings, I knew her to be a kind and giving person. She will be missed.
