Linda was like a mother to me, sharing her love and tolerating my many intrusions into her household over the years. Though I have not seen her recently, the picture of her inspires memories of the joyful times I spent with the Spencer Family at Lake Cumberland. She will be remembered fondly and missed dearly.
Linda was a wonderful, giving person. She so much enjoyed her family and friends. She lived life to the fullest. She had a special quiet energy that radiated She will be missed. Sue Russell
