About 15 years ago I was traveling with my gf, and we were lucky enough to be able to spend a few days in North Little Rock with Linda and my Uncle Preston. She had us in stitches the entire time, serving up stories that made us spit out our drinks. I could have stayed there forever. What a wonderful spirit. She seemed to live right inside the wonder of this life, wherever it showed itself. A real, “stop and smell the roses” type of person. And, my goodness, that delightful laugh…

We love you, Aunt Linda. May you rest In peace.

I loved Aunt Linda. I will always cherish the time I did have with her growing up. I remember always sitting and watching her put makeup on and annoying her because I asked so many questions. God Bless all the family

So sad to hear about Linda's passing. Linda and I went to ASU together and remained friends through the years. Our last visit was in a NLR grocery store years ago. She was always a loving and generous person and so intelligent and fun to be around. God give your family peace and comfort. I will always remember and love her.

I first met Linda at TGIF. After that she became a friend. She was working at Bank of America Mortgage & she was the person that led Jeff & I through the purchasing of our home in 1999. I’ve visited with her a gazillion times since then. She was a real genuine lady. She will be missed. Prayers for her Husband, Preston, her siblings & the entire family during this difficult time.
RIP Linda!

Linda was a dear friend to Etta and me for many years. She and I worked together in the early 80's and developed a close friendship and then when she met Etta they became best friends as well. Great person. Someone you could trust and could depend on. Great memories of a wonderful person. We will miss her.
