My condolences to all of you. I always looked forward to linda and Sy having dental appointments in Clark. I could usually count on having a great visit with them at the bistro. So sorry for your loss.

Jim, Janice, Jerry, Just wanted to pass along my condolences for your loss of Linda! Jerry, from our discussion on Tuesday you indicated that Linda had been having some health problems over the last few years! As I think back on all of our family get togethers for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I remember that there were more boys thas girls for the basketball softball games!!! However, as I remember, Linda always held her own competing with Reed, Lou, Mike, and myself competing against the older tier of cousins!! Sorry that she has left this earth way too early! God Bless!

Such a sad day for Linda's family. Linda and I were childhood friends and we had many sleepovers at the farm house. We kept in touch with Christmas cards and watched Jessica grow to adulthood. She had a great sense of humor and will be missed. Karen Grinager-Hagerman

Oh Jess I am so sorry about mom. My deepest sympathies honey I did not know that she wasn’t feeling well if she never said anything. I know your heart is broken as I am still in shock also.
