I was saddened to hear of Ms. McCollum's passing. She was blessed with a kind demeanor and a sweet voice. Her warm smile was always there to great you when entering Brunswick school. Music and poetry were typically at the heart of our conversations. She was generous enough to share her own poetic verses with me. May the Glass and McCollum families be comforted by your lovely memories of dear Linda.

I had the pleasure to work with Ms. McCullom at Brunswick. I was fortunate to see her Make a Difference in the lives she so gently and graciously touchedjust as the song title she sang so beautifully at a Back-to-School Convocation.

She will truly be missed. May God grant her eternal rest.

I worked with Linda at Brunswick. What always stood out was her beautiful voice that was matched only by her beautiful nature. Her performance of an original song at the Back-to-School Convocation in Gary showcased her talent and definitely made it a memorable day!

She was an outstanding craftsperson as well-decorating her office space and creating gifts that were astounding. (I still have the Christmas trees she made and use them every year.)

She was kind and patient with the parents as well as with the staff (neither one an easy task, although she made it appear to be.) She was such a professional.

She will be sorely missed in our school corporation. My thoughts and sympathy go out to her family.

To the loving family,
I remember Linda being a kind and gentle soul. May she take her rest now and know that we will see her again. Be comforted and remember...

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord"."I Thessalonians 4-16-17
