Linda excelled at encouraging her children and others. Linda was a very loving person with a sweet spirit and personality. She found joy in her children and her grandchildren. Linda did not meet any strangers. She was well known for her giving spirit. She loved making others happy and loved to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions with others. We always looked forward to our birthday calls because we knew that we would be blessed with a song. She was also known for giving out tokens of love.
