    We are so sorry for the loss of Linda. We will miss her presence in this world. We will always hang onto the wonderful memories we have of her. As you know she was so very very very strong and courageous and we admired her, for her will to battle cancer for over 14 years. Linda loved you guys with all her being and it showed every time she spoke of her family. She was an exceptionally hard worker and gave a 110% to everything she did. We pray for strength and peace as you go through this difficult time. With love and deepest sympathy. Butch, Judy and family

  11. Linda, we feel we can still talk to you as if you were still here with us. It feels like it is just a dream and we will wake up and expect you to be there still. You always called us no matter how you felt to see if we were OK. You put up the good fight. I am sure there was one heck of a motorcycle parade for your entrance into the Gates of Heaven. Keep looking down at us and keep us set straight. We love you, miss you and we will meet again!🙏🙏😘😘❤️❤️🌹🌷💐🦀🦀 Claire and Warren ps looking forward to your celebration of life and how Ed put it, it will be a heck of a celebration!!

  14. This poem meant a lot to Linda and in 2017 she mailed it to Robyne and I and asked that it be read at her memorial service.
    Here you go Linda, you were an amazing friend and I will love and miss you forever! You should be proud of how your lived your dash!

    The Dash (by Linda Ellis)

    I read of a man who stood to speak at a funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… the end.

    He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.

    For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.

    For it matters not, how much we own, the cars….the house….the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.

    So think about this long and hard; are there things you’d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged.

    To be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.

    If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile…remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.

    So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash…would you be proud of the things they say about how your lived your dash?
