    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and guidance with me!
    Rest In Peace dear lady and know you are missed.

    I met you when you hired me at Bergen Brunswig. I often told you that it was the best thing you ever did. Loved to make you laugh. You were my sounding board when I was having a rough day. Thanks for opening up your office to me. You always made time to let me vent. Also, thanks for all the Orlando Miracle games you took me to. Lots of fun!!!! I pray that you’re Resting In Paradise, Linda

    Linda you will be greatly missed.
    You left us too soon. I will always treasure all the times we were together at family birthdays, thanksgiving, Christmas and all activities I had the opportunity to share with you. I pray that you are at peace.

    The start of March Madness reminds me of something Linda and I always shared....a love of women's college basketball. One of my fondest memories with Linda was when we met in Atlanta for the Women's Final Four in 2003. We had a fun-filled long weekend of activities and watched some exciting games!! I am so happy we were able to experience it together. Now she can cheer on the Lady Vols with Pat.
    Rest easy, sweet friend. I will miss you.

    Linda was adventurous, something I am not sure most would know. We shared a love for trying new things. I remember a particular ski trip, and not being into skiing, she went snowmobiling. Or, there was a Caribbean cruise where she tried out hang gliding. As always, she kept her common sense as her guide. She enjoyed the best sides of life and always held on to a happy outlook. I will miss her, and it is such a privilege to have a friend like Linda Brown. Rest in peace, dear friend.

    Hard to believe that you are no longer here. I have a lifetime of memories of you, ones that I will continue to share with the kids as the years go on. And yes, you had a laugh that will always be vivid in my memory. You and Grandma both. Holidays will not be the same, but know that your fudge bowl and recipe are in good hands. ❤

    I can still hear Linda’s laugh. When I heard the sad news of her passing, that was the first image that popped into my mind. We have been neighbors since May of 1992 and the neighborhood will forever be missing one of its beautiful souls. Rest peacefully dear soul.

    I can no longer see you, but I can hear your laughter turn to a smile. Your Blue eyes reminded me of a peaceful sky. Your gentle voice telling stories always brings me to a pleasant place. Your Beautiful soul will never be forgotten. Not sad, but glad to have known you. And a new chapter begins ...
    Love Lizzy

    Linda, we have been best friends for 45 years, but we were more like sisters. I miss you, your smile and your laughter. I know you are up there with your Mom, Dad, Cindy, Bullie, Boomer & your grandparents. I bet Uncle Joe is there grilling. One day we will see each other again. Love you!!
