Our love and sympathy go to your family. Linda was one of the 1st people I knew when we moved to Texas 36 years ago. Although I didn't see a lot of her after she left the law firm I thought of her often. She was very memorable! Bless you all Betty and Bob DeKorne

So sorry for your loss. Linda was a good friend to my late wife, Barbara Walker. They worked in the same area.

Backie was a kind, loving person who always cared for those around her and gave her all to provide for her family, especially in the form of emotional support. I have nothing but positive memories of her and feel fortunate to have been able to share moments of my own life with her. May the family find peace in the wake of such a loss and may Backie enjoy a peaceful, eternal rest.

Oh sweet Linda, I´m not ready to say goodbye. You were there when I needed you to hear and feel my pain.....I love you so much for those visits. You insisted on cooking for us, and it was delicious. Your sister was my friend and when we lost her we filled our loss with each other, I had a new life long friend. Jared, Alex and precious Henry, my heart is broken..... she loved you all with her whole heart and soul. Godspeed to all.....
