    Linda was my dear friend and I miss her so very much. She was one of the most caring and giving people I have ever known. We went through some tough times together and always made it because we had each other to lean on. I have to now remember the good times to somehow adjust to life without my best friend. Rest In Peace pretty lady.

    I was very saddened by the news tonight of Linda’s passing. She was such a light and loved life in all aspects. The moment I met her, I knew we would be friends. She embraced just breathing and having fun. I have not seen her in years, but I know she enjoyed life to it’s fullest and loved her husband and her son and family. It’s been awhile since i have seen her, but if I got the chance for one last time to saw hello, it would be like old times. Laughing, eating and enjoying each other. Wish I got to see you one last time…..Love you, Darlene Desjardins

    We were so saddened to hear of Linda’s passing. Such a sudden passing and our hearts go out to Dave, young Dave, and Pam. We have such wonderful fond memories of Linda. She was a very generous person and would do anything for a friend or someone in need. Some of the memories were teaching Julie how to cook pasta sauce for her mother in law’s first visit. Other memories were parties at their home in Wilmington. Always a pleasure spending time with and conversing with her. She always had such interesting stories to tell. So sorry for your loss! The Dolan family is here for you all should you need anything!
