  1. I first met Linda at Thursday Bible Study, and we later worked together as volunteers at Sharing Hope Ministry. I loved her very much and am so sorry for your loss.

  2. I am so sorry to learn about your mom’s passing. She and Joe were such great friends as were she and Kay. They will meet her with open arms. Love, Marjorie Walsh.

  3. I will always remember Aunt Linda as being kind and loving. As a kid we spent every Christmas Eve with the Stafford family forming lasting memories. Heaven is getting another good one.
