  42. Linda was always true to herself and others. I always admired her beauty and character; ever since high school. I loved that she was open and honest and always up for a fun time. The world would be better with more Lindas in it and her departure from worldly life will be felt by so many whose lives she touched. Love, strength and sympathy to all her family and friends. Fly high Potts. X

Your service was sad, but also very funny, it made me cry and then laugh..Ben told your life story too a tee. You sure did have enjoy life to the max.. Love to everyone, sorry i couldn’t be there..Love Lobbyxx
