The world has lost a very special woman. We have many wonderful memories of family gatherings, playing cards, drinking beer and talking smack. Aunt Linda had a larger than life personality and was a hoot and a half! Of course, she was quite the spitfire so you had to be out of reach if you riled her! We will miss her great hugs and that beautiful smile. All our love to Uncle Donnie, Jimmy, Ronnie, Brenda, their better halves, the grandbabies and the whole Anderson clan.

We knew we had made a special friend from the moment we met this lady! Loved her zest for life and lived it with so much energy. Linda, your stories will forever be embedded in our minds and hearts! From taking the kiddos out fishing and traveling right down to the damned little red house on her and Don's last vacation. We love you little lady and LORD LOVE A DUCK forever!!

Sending Blessings to Donnie and all of the family. Linda was a wonderful friend, over the years she has sent up many prayers for me and my concerns. She was very strong willed and had a major impact on how she wanted to finish out her life of this I am sure. She had a strong faith so it is comforting to know that she is now looking down on all of us and she is still sending her prayers! I shall miss you dear friend! Blessed be her memory!
