Linda was a special “angel” for us…she always, always showed us nothing but love and friendship, we thank God that he allowed our paths to cross. God please grant the family peace.

The Rose
Beyond the Wall

A rose once grew
Where all could see,
Sheltered beside a garden wall,
And, as the days passed swiftly by,
It spread its branches, straight and tall,

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide-
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side…

Now, You who deeply feel its loss,
Be comforted –the rose blooms there –
Its beauty even greater now,
Nurtured By God’s own loving care,

Expressing heartfelt sympathy
In the loss that you must bear,
And may you find some comfort
In the thought that others care.

Dear Willis and family,

I am so saddened at the sudden loss of Linda. She was an amazing woman. I will miss her friendship as well as her technical expertise. She helped me through many tax seasons. She will be greatly missed.
