Not sure what to say?

How very sorry I am to read of the passing of your loved one. In your moments of sorrow remember that God does hear your prayer and is there to revive your spirit and your crushed heart. Please accept my condolences. (Isaiah 57:15)

I enjoyed working with Linda though our Girl Scout connections. She was always happy and helpful. May the many wonderful memories she left with her family and fiends be a consolation at this time.

Our deepest Condolences to Jerry and family.

We are Next door neighbor.

Added note:

As I was again thinking about the time length of my friendship with Linda, I realized we first met in 1997 instead of 1999...a total of 20 plus years! I feel grateful and truly blessed for the years of friendship we did have.

I first met Linda while working for the WA State Investment Board in 1999. I worked there for three years and she became, and has been a dear "forever" friend since that time. We have continued to keep in touch throughout the years since. She was a work friend as well as a life-long friend and I will miss her; her smile, her bubbly laugh (as others have described), and her always warm and caring heart very much.

I knew her to also be a very loving wife to her husband...

I worked with Linda from most of her career at the State Investment Board. In my long career there I never met anyone like her. Always with a smile, always with a kind word, always with the inquiry How are you today John? This even in the last few weeks when she was in the depths of her health struggle.

How can one rightfully assess a life like hers? You simply cannot. Sadly there are very few persons with the character of Linda. Her loss will resonate within the investment board...

WSIB's admin team -- 2009. Linda, you will always be in our hearts!

Her ready smile, her laugh, her hugs, and her bubbly spirit will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
