Linda was such a beautiful person, inside and out; and I feel honored to have known her and called her my Friend. She loved her family and friends so very much; and was always there to listen, offer encouragement, comfort and support , whenever needed. I will always be grateful to Linda for giving me an opportunity to work with her at Summer Breeze Senior Living . I learned so much from her during that time. She will be sorely missed by us all. Our loss is now Heaven’s gain. I know for certain, that we never truly lose the people we love so very much. They are in every act, thought, and decision we make . Their love leaves an imprint in our lives forever. Mike, Joey, Lori and Maleah, & Family, I share your grief and tears today; and am praying for God’s peace and comfort for you all. Linda’s beautiful spirit lives on in all of you, the ones she loved so dearly . With love, Nancy Harrison-Watson

Linda is a beautiful reflection of God’s love for humanity. She touched the hearts of multitudes in their time if grief and sadness of seeing their dear one’s health decline. Linda new the depths of despair and that only the miracle of the resurrection will remedy this situation (Adam left.) Jesus ransom sacrifice has bought life eternal for us on a paradise. Linda was comforting families and now, her family can be assured of seeing her in good health. The resurrection will awaken her ,just as Lazarus was called to life. Acts 24:15 Some have been taken to heaven to rule as kings and priests with Christ in the Kingdom government over the earth. Rev 5:10. Jesus said the meek will inherit the earth, so we will see a paradise restored where there will be no more pain, sickness or, death.

To: Linda's husband, children, grandchildren, siblings, relatives and friends I had the blessing of being a neighbor of Linda and her family on Whitmarsh (Whitemarsh) Island during the mid 1960s and early 1970s. Linda and her family were a kind and congenial group, just great neighbors. In later years (as well as in recent statements concerning her faith), I find much comfort in hearing the news that Linda placed her trust for eternal life in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (John 3:16). It is a great peace in knowing that we can see her again accordingly. May God's peace and comfort be with you all, in Jesus' name. Amen. Franklin (& Susie) Thomas
