    • Dean, Daryl, Lisa and Paul,
      So sorry to hear of your families loss. Linda was always so nice to me when I hung out with Lisa. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

    • I am so sad to hear of the death of Linda…. I only knew her through the friendship of her son Paul and my son Kory McConaughey…
      She was lways so friendly and kind to me…. She is at peace now!!!

    • Linda and I were great friends for many years. We raised our kids together –swimming at Perch Lake in the summer, going to the cabin at Eau Claire River ,and attending all the many activities our kids were involved in. In earlier years we also did some traveling together. She did several counted cross stitch hangings for me and I valve them dearly. She was very talented with her needle work. May she rest in peace.

    • I could never have wished for a sweeter sister! Will miss her daily emails signed off with Love & Hugs and her beating me mercilessly at Scrabble, among many other things!
