I was completely saddened to hear the news that you had passed. But two thoughts popped into my head right away, 1st I will never see that wonderful smile that lite up a room and made you feel so comfortable being around her. Secondly your favorite Christmas movie that will have more meaning to me than ever before It’s a Wonderful Life. Which I think you enjoyed with all your loved ones. I’ll never forget for how for Christmas you always set up in your home the set from the Movie. It was fantastic I appreciated the complete detail and all the hard work you had put into setting it up . But it was something that gave you so much happiness and I thank for those memories. All I know is that heaven is going to be so much brighter now that you and your beautiful smile are up there. God bless you Linda you will be sorely missed by many and have left behind many great memories that we are thankful for. We Love you and may you Rest In Peace. Angelo Falco

There are far too many memories to count. I find myself lost as I remember Linda as not only a Mother, but also a best friend. When you were around her, she always made EVERYONE feel so comfortable. Linda was "light" when there was none around. Her smile was contagious and I always thought she was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!! I will miss her so very much. The memory I most remember is her saying "Oh Rod"...all the time!!! Love and miss Linda deeply, Michelle
