Dear Jim, Keri ,Kris and to Linda’s friends,
The last few days I have been reflecting over the years I have known and admired Linda.
I met Linda when she was 18. She was soon to marry her most favourite person in the world, Jim. Linda’s face said it all, with the most beautiful smile one could imagine walking down the aisle.
During the upbringing of Keri and Kris, Linda was so very proud of her family . When grandkids came, pride and much gratitude continued.
Linda always impressed me with her “brains”. Never looking for attention, and in her modestly , calm conversations, her intelligence was obvious . A very smart lady- she was!
Linda’s interest and care for others was always there, even as she endured, bravely, these awful months of sickness. She never failed to ask, and genuinely care about the lives of others.
It’s so hard to lose a person like Linda, and the pain in hearts of all who loved her, especially Jim, Kris and Keri, is so big.
Faith is what we hold onto and knowing God will reward Linda with eternal happiness brings a peace amidst the sadness.

Jim, Keri , Chris and families.
Sending our deepest sympathy to all of you during one of life’s most difficult times. This time is especially difficult now with Covid 19; where your extended family, neighbors, friends and co-workers cannot reach out to you like they would want to.
We got to know Linda through the famous “Moonshine Riders” band whom Linda loved and supported faithfully on the road and at home too; as our daughter Kelly tells us.
I also worked with Linda at Canada Post on a few occasions and it was always a pleasure to do so and catch up on life in general.
Cherish your family memories of Linda and know that she is free of pain and suffering and watching over all of you.
Jim. Keri and Kris.
So sorry to hear of your loss.
Jim, Kris and Keri – so sorry to learn today of your huge loss with the passing of your wife and mom – thank goodness you have each other for strength – may your wonderful memories of Linda be a blessing and help you to carry on – my thoughts are with you – Sheila Kelly
