Linda had many passions. Very near the top of that list was her furry friends. She joined many of them in Heaven on June 22. Two of her dogs, Sulley and Cloe are still here and missing her dearly.
Linda loved her family with her whole heart and was always there for them when they needed her most. Her favorite thing to do was to spend time with her loved ones. Traveling was another passion of hers. She shared her love of traveling with her husband and family. She loved being on an island, wearing one of her fun, colorful hats on her head and a drink in her hand with her family by her side. She was an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother that would do anything for her loved ones. She will ALWAYS be loved and missed!
