Sending lots of love to Uncle Francis, Jessie, June, Spike, Amy and their families as well as to Debbie. Aunt Linda will be missed by many including me. Some of the things I think about when a I think of Aunt Linda are... the Windham County Sheriff's office and hearing her voice on the scanner, her love of her family and grandkids, watching her grandchildren play sports, rooting for the Red Sox, NASCAR, her gardens, the twinkle in her eye, her laugh and her fudge. I will miss chatting with her. She always was interested in how we were and what we had been up to. I love you Aunt Linda!

Linda was a wonderful woman who would do anything for anyone. She was a good friend to my parents, and a big help to me when I worked at the Windham County Sheriff's office years ago. Her kindness will live on through her children and grandchildren. Rest in peace.
