Condolences

Condolence From: John & Glenda Sellar
Condolence: Linda has gone now but her smile remained throughout the terrible ordeal she and her family endured. We have known Linda for many years and enjoyed her calm intelligence and fascinating memory of events long ago. We are not sure why these things happen; perhaps we will never know but we will miss her. We can take some comfort that she is now in a safer and pain free place. Our condolences to Tim, Kelly and Casey and to Linda’s extended family. Bless you Linda.

Rocks : Linda had one of the greenest thumbs on the planet. Plants that were wilted and falling over sprang to life when she touched them. Myself being the exact opposite, this was an inexplicable talent and I was seriously envious. Her love of plants and all things gardenwise, not only kept her busy but of course meant that Tim had many “projects” that came his way. Rock gardens was was one of them. When river washed rocks became available (free of charge) in Lakewood, Tim must have mentioned this to Linda and so the “rock transfer “ project was born. So many smooth and various sized rocks were loaded into the back of Tim’s truck, that the front wheels basically had little contact with the road so that steering became quite a challenge. How he managed the 15 mile or so drive back to his house remains a bit of a mystery, but make it he did.
By himself, he unloaded the rocks alongside his driveway, and then wheel barrowed them to locations around the back garden (under supervision !) where they remain to this day - a reminder to all of the skillful application of landscaping skills that belonged to Linda

Condolence From: Janessa Devereux
Condolence: A woman who could smile right up to the end, Linda had a light and grace that was astounding, considering her circumstance. She could laugh with her eyes, and even last week she could still tell me how much fertilizer was too much for my orchid. She is a mighty force who will continue to be felt on this earth and beyond. I feel so lucky to have had her in my life. Tim, you are strong and will one day find your way, though I hate that you have to. You two were so lucky to have each other.

Condolence From: Joyce Norcross
Condolence: Linda was a beautiful little girl and a beautiful woman in every way. She had unbelievable courage, even though she was keenly aware of what was happening and what was going to happen. She will be missed, and I am so very sorry for the last memories her husband and children will have. I hope the memories of good times overshadow the memories of the last two years, when they, also, were very strong and courageous!

Condolence From: Garry & Debbie Fritz
Condolence: After going through some past photos and memories, I came across a few pictures of Linda with a camera in hand and remember fondly just where Garry’s love of photography began. Although we’ve not seen each other a very long time, that smile ever present on her face had a wonderful impact on our lives and we will always have the best memories of Linda’s patience, kindness and courage. Love to you all.

Condolence From: Beverly Hannay
Condolence: Sending my love and prayers to the Jones family for peace and comfort as they say goodbye to sweet Linda. She knew where she was headed so it's only 'goodbye for now' ... until you meet again.

I am a remote colleague of Linda's, working from Upstate New York. She responded to an email I sent out accidentally to the whole company, telling me that she believes 'nothing happens by accident'. We connected and shared stories. My sister is also dealing with a health crisis. I searched Linda out the next time I visited headquarters to thank her for her sweet reply and prayers. She has been on my mind since that time.

She told me she liked the song "Thy Will" by Hillary Scott. Be encouraged by the final lyrics of the song, because I know they encouraged her.

I know you see me
I know you hear me, Lord

Condolence From: Nikki Olsen
Condolence: Linda was a very kind and loving person. She was also a very hard worker, you couldn't have asked for a better co-worker. She always smiled and always loved to help anyway she could. I will never forget her matching outfits (she always had earrings that matched her shirt and even her shoes most of the time). I sure do miss all of the pretty plants she had around our desks and took such good care of them. Linda was an amazing person with an amazing soul. God Bless her and her family. Just remember... she is no longer in pain. I send my love and prayers to the family.

Condolence From: Marlys Brewer and Family
Condolence: Loving Linda was a wonderful and sincere person who accepted everyone she ever met or knew without discrimination or rejection. She found the good in everybody and felt badly for those who did not. Her heart was filled with love and forgiveness and always put family and friends first before doing anything for herself. I will always remember her smile and the desire to make me a better person and to help me through some of my trying and lonely times when Brad was in Djibouti. Loving Linda....thank you for being my friend, bridesmaid 38 years ago and my strength. Love, Marlys.

Condolence From: Tim Bessler
Condolence: Linda was a kind and loving mother, and as a childhood friend of her son Casey, I remember her always being gentle, generous, and friendly toward me. She was always quick to smile. She and Tim raised an excellent son, and were great role models for their kids. Her indefatigable positive attitude showed through even the most challenging time of her life, and while it was cut short by this terrible illness, she did not let it dim the light of her soul.
