Not sure what to say?

I just learned of Linda's passing. It came as quite a shock. I was her 1st manager. I first hired her as a marketing intern while she was in college. Then I hired her when she graduated as an assistant marketing manager. She was a great young lady and grew into a great woman. We lost touch over the years but I always remembered her. God bless.

We had the pleasure of working with the Rooney family on their relocation to the Philadelphia area. Finding the right home, neighborhood, schools and setting for Olivia, Morgan and Aiden was the ultimate priority. Linda spoke constantly about her pride for her children - apologizing many times for sounding as though she was bragging. She just beamed as she described their talents and personalities. Linda shared so many endearing stories during our many house hunting trips and always kept us...

I had the pleasure of working for Linda while in Richmond and there's not many that brought the level of laughter, excitement, and fun that she did to the workplace. Even those of us who knew her for a short while share in your sadness. I hope you know there will be many across the country praying for you all the rest of our lives. I hope you come to feel that power and it gives you strength and comfort.

You and your beautiful family will always be on my mind. I'll miss coming over and seeing you, Mr. Rooney, Morgan, Olivia, and Aiden. My last memory of you was the night before, when Olivia and I were getting ready for our school dance. I'll never forget the smile on your face. Rest in Peace.

Thank you Linda for showing us your passion, intensity and energy.

I only knew Linda for the couple years she was in the Phila area, felt like I knew her for much longer, I saw her on jan 4 for a few minutes and remember talking about her boots and the deal she got on them, we always compared our bargain shopping skills and what the kids had going on, she was always on the way to do a drop off or a pick up from an activity, I wish the best for the kids and hope they know how many people cared for there mom and have them in there thoughts and prayers

"Get some sleep!". Was the last message I wrote on the cup. "Tell me how it goes". Was the last question I never got an answer to. Some memories will last forever, and the ones with you definitely will. Rest in peace, Miss Linda.

Dear Olivia, Morgan, and Aiden,
I was so saddened to hear about both your mom and your dad. Linda was my Regional Sales Manager when I worked as a Vaccine Specialist in Little Rock, AR. I remember her contagious smile and laughter at every meeting. Just know, that I am praying for all of you. God will help you get through this, I promise.
My deepest regrets,
Jo Ann Keith
Little Rock, AR

My thoughts and prayers are with Linda's children and all relatives and friends. So sorry for your loss.
