    Sincere condolences on Linda’s death. She worked in x-ray at Kemptville District Hospital when I worked there as an RN. Linda was always pleasant to work with. God’s peace.

    Derek and I are very saddened by this horrid news. Derek had just been down to visit late September and we are so glad he took the opportunity to visit Linda and Wayne in their new home. I remember the good times playing golf. Linda and I liked to play a faster game than Derek & Wayne. We never had the good scores that Wayne got though!. Our future visits to Kemptville will never be the same without Linda being at our catch up dinners. We laughed and got all the news! Kinda was so very proud of her family. A very hard worker dedicated to the farm; her love of life was infectious. Our sincere condolences to Wayne and the family.

    Wayne, Cheryl, Angela, Donna, Kathy and families….My heart breaks for you all. Linda was a wonderful, kind and thoughtful lady. No matter where I would bump into her, whether at the grocery store, Walmart, South Mountain Fair Grounds, etc she would always stop and have a big conversation with me. She talked about her 3 grandchildren Terra, Logan & Cameron, how her kids were doing, golf etc. And if Wayne wasn’t with her, she would tell me how he was doing as well. She was so happy that Cheryl and I remained great friends for so long. It was very sad to see Linda so ill in the end, and yet she still was worried about Wayne. She is no longer in pain or suffering and may she now Rest In Peace. I am so blessed to have known her. She will be greatly missed. Xo
