Linda you will be missed. I will miss hearing your laugh, seeing your smile, listening to your practical good sense and your advise on easing gardening. You have always presented a calm presence and an easy honest laugh. I enjoyed the times we have spent together and the whimsy in our conversations. I will miss the joy and your knowing look every year as you wore your crafted special annual Christmas necklace. I am so sorry you have left us but I know you will bring joy to your loved ones, that went before you when you are united in heaven. I do not know what words of solace will ease the pain of your passing for Chuck, and your family but I pray they find peace in knowing you are not suffering and have gone to a better place. God sent you as a blessing and now he has taken you home. Til we meet again Linda, with love Barbara.

I met Linda over 40 years ago when she moved across the street from me. She became one of the best friends I have ever had. There are friends and there are friends. True friends are hard to come by. My Mama always said if you could count your true friends on one hand, you could consider yourself fortunate. Now I know what she meant. Linda was a true friend. I will miss you every day, but your work here is done. Rest high on that mountain until we meet again. As we said to each other the last time I visited, I said. I love you Linda Norman, You said. I love you Ginger Newton. Ginger

There are people who go through life projecting an ego that is always promoting self-interest. In stark contrast, there are people who, like Linda, find pleasure in assisting others to experience success in their personal and vocational growth and development. Her positive influence on the lives of many contributed to a better community. To the members of the family, I am sadden by Linda's passing.

Linda was a wonderful mother and friend. I was blessed to have her in our family. She loved to grow flowers and was there when you needed her. My heart goes out to Renee, Marie, Ricky and Chuck and the rest of her family. I told her once she was a saint and she said no. But she really was one here on earth. Linda, I love you and will miss you. Rest in peace loving lady. We are blessed that you were here in our lifes.
