Not sure what to say?

Dear Andy, Christie and George Hamilton sent Linda's obituary this morning. It made me so sad.

Albeit many years since we were all friends in Yorktown Heights, New York I have such fond memories of you and Linda. It sounds as though you have a wonderful family and have had a wonderful life together. For that I am happy.

The very best to you and my deepest condolences.

My sincere condolences to Andy and the entire Stokes family. I worked with Andy in IBM Retail Store Systems and met Linda several times over the years. She was a lovely and gracious lady. I wish you all God's comfort and peace.

I am so sorry for your loss. Will be praying for you and the family

Our hearts and prayers go out to Andy and the family with the passing of Linda Sue. She was a great lady,
a pleasure to know, play tennis with, bridge, and share an occasional nightcap. When people ask what the
University of Alabama is noted for, most reply "football." The Stoke's many, many, friends would answer
"Andy and Linda Sue." Truly their marriage was made in equal parts in heaven and in Tuscaloosa. Hang in

Linda came to me over a year ago, and then back every week to get her hair done. She was a favorite. So sweet, and always made good conversation. I will miss our Thursday mornings together.
My condolences to her family. And thank you Courtney for your kind words.

We spent many hours with Linda and Andy at Moonspinners in PCB talking politics in the pool, toasting the sunset with a drink and our usual toast Good night old friend, thanks for a beautiful day, we will see you in the morning. And then on Saturday night listening to Linda sound out with ROLL TIDE every time Alabama football team would score. We could hear her throughout the entire complex. We had so much fun with the Stokes and will forever remember Linda and Andy. May God hold Linda in the...

Although I didn't know Mrs. Linda Stokes, I am sending heartfelt prayers to her daughter Courtney who works in the adjacent School at University of California, Irvine and her husband Ed, whom I work with. May peace be yours.

So sorry to hear of Linda's passing. We enjoyed being neighbors for several wonderful years. She was an amazing woman and a good friend. I will always remember the good times we had all the great conversations we shared. Thinking of Andy and the family now, ya'll are in our prayers and thoughts. Much love.
