    I will miss her so much. She was my one and only and I am so lost without her. She is no longer in pain and in a better place with her mom and dad now. I look forward to when I will see her again. I love you Linda, with all of my heart and soul.

      Sorry this post is so very late. I was shocked when Brenda, her sister in law, called to tell me Linda had died. I want to extend my sympathy to Linda’s entire family. Linda and I have been friends since grade school. We spent many hours on the phone and slumber parties. I will never forget her infectious laugh and wonderfully kind heart. So very glad I got to visit with her when she was in Okawville, working with Chrissy at the Bakery. My heart hurts for the whole family….Prayers and Hugs to all-Janine (Klingenberg) Brammeier.

        Thank you Janine. I remember she had told me about you before. I appreciate your kind words.

          Thanks for responding… Linda was SO HAPPY to have you as her husband. She just beamed when she told me about you and how you two got together. Two special people. I still don’t really believe it. My heart hurts for you all.
