  2. So sorry for your loss; both of my children had her in Lawler. My oldest son Is autistic and she was very good with him. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers; pray you find comfort in the days ahead.

  3. In memory of Linda. I worked with Linda at Lawler Elementary School. She was always helpful with anything I need on the computer. I consider Linda as a good friend. I will truly miss her.

  4. I was so sorry to hear about Linda. I certainly enjoyed working with her at Lawler as the computer aid, but even more as my helper with the ESS Program. We shared some fun field trips and other projects with the kids. My sympathy also goes to Jarrod, who was one of my special students, and Robert who was one of our classmates at Caneyville.

    • Jarrod, so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I remember her helping during our Cub Scout events and your sporting activities with Nolan. May the wonderful memories comfort your family. Your mom was a wonderful lady!

  6. Linda was my first niece and we all fought over who got to hold her or play with her. She was a beautiful, smart, and loving child who turned into a beautiful, smart, and loving woman. I missed her when they moved back to Kentucky. I know she was overjoyed to have Jarrod and then her beautiful grandkids.

    I am so sorry for your loss Robert, Jarrod and Teresa.

    May God be with you in your grief and great loss
