    Linda, my friend, I'll miss you. You were so kind, generous and such a good friend to mom and me. You were an Angel on Earth and now you will fly with the Angels in Heaven. Until we meet again. RIP Rachel, Chip, Allison & Hannah

    Linda and I worked together in the office at Holy Cross Episcopal Church, and we enjoyed our time together. I loved her positive outlook and willingness to do whatever was needed. I am saddened by her sudden death but know that she is with God.

    We were sorry to hear of the unexpected passing of our dear friend and neighbor. We both served on the Telfair HOA Board with Linda for six years and we always found her to be a pleasure to work with. Over the years, we grew close to her and will miss her dearly. She will be in our prayers. Godelieve Kalia and Dan Maker
