  2. To Linda’s Family….I am so sorry for your loss. Linda and I were in the “journalistic ” clubs at Highland. We both loved pulling pranks on each other. She always had a smile and wanted to be sure we all were having a great day. She is truly missed.

  3. I cannot even begin to list all the joy she brought to my life. No one was a stranger to Linda. She had a sparkle, a big smile, and a heart of gold. She rescued me at the 40th Highland High School 1973 reunion. I did not recognize anyone (living 1070 away) until Linda got out of her seat and welcomed me to the table that fit me fine. I won the door prize (as all knew my number – my zodiac sign 69. I loved it – A throw with Highland High School and a Scottish man (we were known as the Scots – bagpipes and all. We had a blast and we thought we would have more. But God was ready to take her Home. Like most, she will forever have a place in my heart. I will miss, you Linda, only until we meet again!

  4. Linda was such a sweet person. Never heard an unkind word from her or about her. And so funny!! The contributions she made in her life will be truly missed. Prayers to her family as they get through this difficult time.

  5. I’m sorry to hear of the bad news. I have not seen or talked to her in years. If there is a service, I would like to know.
