My husband Jim and I have had the pleasure of knowing Linda the past 5 years. I got to know her personally when we served together on the History committee at Bellpoint UMC. She always had a twinkle in her eye when her dear cousin Sandy Davis assigned us just ONE more project! We will miss her. We send our sympathy and prayers to Linda's family and friends.

The Wirz family

I remember all the laughter you gave me as I was growing up.  It is cruel that wee had to lose you so soon, I know many regret your passing but know it is God's plan for you to rest in his arms to relieve your suffering.  There is a hole in our hearts this day where you were and I will fill that hole up with memories of you.  Blessings to my Aunt Sandy and the family that supported you throughout your life.  I love you, please hold my son when you find him in heaven and tell him his mommy loves him.  Linda, you will remain immortal in our memories.  I love you and I will miss you.  Forever, your cousin Pamela Eshelman Canton

Our love and prayers are with Linda's whole family.  I know how much you all meant to her.  She was a longtime neighbor (around the corner) and friend.  I always enjoyed our visits at tax time and when we saw each other and could both brag about our grandkids.  She will be missed by many, I know.  Sincerely, Pat and Larry
