  2. I will never forget Linda asking me, at a EC boys basketball game if I happened to bring my repurposed sweet pickles for snacks! 2 nights later at another EC boys game, I delivered to her a small snack bag of pickles! She was quite excited to get them! My thoughts and prayers for comfort, to Robert and all of the family! Hugs to all!

    Bob and family,
    We are so very sorry for your loss. She fought a brave battle and is now with her Lord, whom she loved so dearly. Tracy and I are sending prayers for comfort and strength during this most difficult time. You and your family have truly wonderful memories that we pray will help to bring you peace. We will think of her when we see the beauty of a butterfly or the twinkle of the stars. Fly high with the angels dear Linda, fly high. Rest in peace and rise in glory. God’s blessings to you all.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of Linda. I worked with her at the bank in Carmi for several years. I enjoyed hearing her talk about her family and how she love to take pictures. She made me laugh & was a joy to be around. I’m sorry I can’t be there with you all today but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Take Care & May God help you find comfort during this time. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»
