Linda's soul was so beautiful, and she loved with her whole heart. She was always excited when she talked about going home to see Jesus! Though I mourn her passing, I know she is so happy! See you in a few years, sweet lady.

Linda leaves behind an amazing legacy of love. Hundreds of church children (including ours) thought of her as their second mom. Thank you, Linda for all the hugs, prayers and special care you shared.

As a kid I watched Ms. Linda from a distance bring a new young face with her to church what seemed like most every Sunday. Now as an adult I realize that Ms. Linda was simply walking out one of the most clear Biblical principles of sacrifice and seeing orphans and those without a home cared for and told they are not forgotten. Her impact in so many children's lives was truly a "here on earth as it is in heaven" demonstration of the Kingdom of God.
