    Chuck and all the family, Barbara and I are so sorry for your loss. Linda was one of the truly nice people you meet in life; a warm heart, a wonderful sense of humor and made you a better person for knowing her. We were so blessed to have her as a friend. May God's love and wonderful memories of Linda bring you peace. Barbara & David Buettner

    Dear Charles, Dori, Kristen, and Amanda, We are thinking of you today - keeping you close in our hearts in prayer - as you gather to remember the wonderful, wife, mother, sister, friend that Linda was. We had hoped to travel up to Wilmington but commitments just didn't allow it this time. I hope the warm memories y'all share will bring you comfort and peace. Love, Barbara Lee and Curt

    My sincere sympathy to Chuck and his family! Linda was a special person. I met her at Curves. Even though physically challenged, she gave it her all! I also enjoyed Chuck and Linda's friendship at the wine shop. May she rest in peace!
