Hello Don, Ann, and Brian, I was very sorry to read the news of Linda's passing. A wife that loving a mother as caring as Linda will be greatly missed there is no doubt. Her contributions to others who may never have known her will also be missed. You had a gift for those 45 years, and missing her is one of her rewards. My best thoughts and consolation to you Don, Ann, Brian and your families.

Hi Don and family,

We were very sorry to hear of Linda's illness and then her passing. I could not attend the memorial because am out of town, but I am thinking about you all. I remember when asked to be President of SI so many years ago I only consented if Linda would be my VP. She went on to be such a great member of SI and a good person and friend. I have many fond memories of our SI years together! Lots of love, Pam and John Plavan

The Manor Family, I'm so sad to hear about Linda Manor's passing. May God provide you some peace of mind. But always remember all the good memories your Mom and Wife has provided you over the years. I'll never forget the Christmas House and her Love and passion for decorating. She will be missed. God Bless..
