    Linda and my cousin Barbara taught me how to make a proper salad when I was about 12. Will never forget how funny that was. And we also went to see the Osmonds in concert at Municipal Auditorium – I had some great times with Barbara and Linda. So sorry for your loss.

    Linda is my cousin on my mom’s side (Bowers). We were shocked and saddened to hear of her loss. I spent many vacations in Kansas City as a child with her, and she visited my family in Wisconsin and was her usual generous, happy self. I will miss her greatly and am sorry the loss of her immediate family David, Charlie and their families. God Bless and sympathies to you all.

Leave a Condolence.
