I hope you are happy and at peace."
"I think about you all the time. I'm going to Hawaii next week and have wonderful memories of when we went together in Oct 2010. I kept my promise and am watching over Philip.

Your mother was/is a special lady. I have a photo from her 50th birthday party that I will try and post. Thank you for doing this loving memorial to your mom."
"How to express the emptiness in my heart? Don, Mom, Dad and then you. How I wish you had called me. We talked you down so many times in the past little sister. My heart aches. Philip I love you.

"Can't believe it's been a year already. I miss you so much. I always have those moments that only you would understand! That's why I understood you so much as well, and it helps with the pain. Love you, Deb"

"Thinking about u Dew on this night.I'll never forget"
"Happy Birthday sweet angel, I love you and it's hard to celebrate without you. Until we meet again!"
"The only resolve I can get from you leaving is you were needed in Heaven to do what sweet people like you do.You are missed but will see you down the road and feed some ducks."
"You are missed by so many people, and I am one of them. Sometimes I miss you so much I ache. I miss your laugh, your love, your friendship. I hope to see you when my time comes."
"TY Linda for the sign to tell me alls ok on the other side~I miss our talks terribly and think about you every time I see those movies with you know who in them~Like Jack I will miss feeding the ducks with you everyday~It was so much fun having you back in my life after 40 yrs.Glad to know you are our Guardian Angel~We're in good hands!!

I thought it would get better with time. It hasn't! I just miss you more. I miss our daily talks and discussions from "Jesus Calling". I miss your love and your laugh. I hope you have found the peace you sought."
"Linda, I don't know where to begin. After losing you, then my Momma in March '12, I just feel so lost and empty. I think about you both constantly, and I hope you both have met each other up there in Heaven. I wish desperately, I could hug you both, give you a kiss and hear that everything will be alright. I'm not so sure it will. But I look forward to that day we're reunited. I <3 U."
"I think of you all the time and miss your laugh- Whitneys death reminded me of you- a mistake a tragic mistake- I wish I could talk to you again- Love you"
"Adele just won a Grammy for the song you sang to me Dew "Some one like you" our song but then you know ~JnD"
"It seems like just yesterday that the awful news came of your passing. I have not been able to bring myself to delete you from my phone or my contact list on my e-mail page. I keep thinking I will wake up and this will have just been a nightmare. How you are missed...I ache so bad.
You are my angel!"
"Linda, I think of you often, especially at night by mybed at home. I have a framed photo of you with a candle lit next to it when I'm home. I miss you e wry day, and I love you more than you'll ever know. We'll always have EZE, right?!?! I love and miss you, Sweet Angel. XoX"
"Dearest Linda...I have thought of you so often, and just this week pulled out a crystal vase you gave me years ago. It now holds a bunch of beautiful bright pink flowers...a tribute to your beauty and loving heart. I will always remember your wonderful bright spirit, and know you live on in your son, Phil...You are loved..."
"As long as I knew you were ok I was ok Dew but now I'm not ok I'm not ok ~ JnD"

"just read your Christmas card from last year- yeah we were supposed to get together- I felt so connected to you on facebook- never dreamed you were in trouble- you never let on- was it a mistake? I think about you every day and miss you- who am I going to laugh with- listen to you off-color jokes? WHY???ou were the best--- never thought things would get to you - you were so strong-"
"Philip...we are all so saddened to hear of your Mom's passing and now our thoughts are turned to you. May your heart be comforted with all wonderful memories you shared. It wouldn't have been nearly as much fun watching you kids grow up at school without her. We did have fun; that was the best part of Woo...bringing people together as family. - M.(DeSantis)"
"It is not getting any easier accepting you have departed this earth which examples the impact you had on my life and others.Although you were not exactly sure who I was from high school,our friendship from FB was unique and as you stated ,you knew exactly who I was and understood me.Thank you dear Linda for being the person you are and we will feed those heavenly ducks one day."
"Soar with the angels Linda, you will ALWAYS be in my heart."
I remember and miss the fun, laughter and moments we shared when you first arrived at JFK. The instant friendship that was created will be dearly missed.

"Lynda, May you have found the grace and peace we all strive for...we all know how much you loved your son Phil, I wish him strength and solice as he lives with his grief and sadness of your loss. You will always continue to live thru him...God Bless"
"Thank you Linda for coming to stay overnight at my house last spring. We had such a good time, you were at your best, smiling, spunky, entertaining and delightful. I am happy that I have these last joyous memories of you to blend in with all the good times we had on and off the plane. I will miss you and rest in peace, dear Linda."
Your Mother was such a special lady...funny vibrant, and generous.
She loved you very much and her spirit will always be surrounding you to help and guide you, no matter how old you are."
"Phil I always looked forward to flying with your mom. She was so proud of you she always had pictures of you. I will always remember her as a person who made me smile. Many times we went out to dinner in Buenos Aires and did sight seeing. i will always remember her beautifully face in my prayers."
"Dear Linda, you were my mom's friend and I always looked forward to your visits. You were so sweet and beautiful and I looked up to you. Thank you for these memories. Rest in peace."
"Linda I will truly miss YOU! i know that you are in a better place
I valued all your Advice through out the years.especially when my
sons were teenagers.Your wisdom,empathy,and strength really
helped me.I also remmember your energy which was amazing"
"Linda was a sweet soul, I knew that if she was on a crew that it would be a wonderful trip. She will be deeply missed by all."
"Linda, you were one of the few "Senior" flight attendants that welcomed me with open arms to the JFK base. You imparted a lot of wisdom, strength, and laughter on all trips that we worked together. I can't help but feel as though a bright light was snuffed out way too soon, but I will always be grateful that I had the chance to see it. I hope you're at peace, and know you are loved."
"I'll always remember how happy I was to see you on a trip. It meant that, no matter what, even if someone made us roll our eyes, we'd turn a negative into a positive and have a laugh. You brought ease and class rolled up with a sense of adventure, and then who knew we'd bond over kitty pictures on Facebook?! Thanks, Linda for gracing us here for a while.... You will be missed. xxo"
"My heart is broken knowing you have been taken from us. You made me laugh and smile. I looked back at our last conversation and you sent me an HOLA JORGE, Besos. Now I send you this note and hope you are at peace. I'll carry you in my heart always, you are dear and special to me. Rest in peace and until we meet again. Vaya con Dios."
"Linda from the day we met over 30 years ago- you made me laugh with your irreverant humour, real belly laughs. You were always so sweet to me- remembering my birthday always and christmas cards- how can you be gone and why? and in Dallas? you were so beautiful inside and out- did you know that? and sensitive. I loved you"
"Oh sweet, beautiful Linda....you were so much fun to fly with! Always so much laughter on trips we flew together. There are so many people who loved you and will miss you....Philip, every time I flew with your Mom our main topic of conversation was our children and how much we adored them. You were truly the light of her life."
"It is so hard to say good bye. Loved ones suffer the most, only time will ease this pain.
I am thankful we re-connected recently after having been friends since the very early years of our lives.
Hope your journey is blessed and also that of your loved ones.
much love to you and yours."
You were always the most fun person to fly with. When I saw your name on a trip I knew we'd be laughing non stop.
Always funny, beautiful, full of life. You will be missed but remembered for all of the joy you brought to our lives."
"Linda, from the moment we met, we were friends. You were so nice and caring to me. You were a gentle soul and one of the prettiest ladies I know. Your pain is now gone and you will live in our hearts forever. I will keep the picture I have of us all from your baby shower and remember you that day. Glowing and so happy that Phillip was only days away. Love you my friend."
"I met Linda many years ago at the JFK base. I enjoyed flying with her and always said to her how pretty she was. Her beautiful smile and mighty laughter will be missed. RIP.... PRETTY LADY !!!"
"I am so sorry about your mom.... I am a gate agent at JFK --I was always to happy to see your moms pretty face when I worked a flight ... An incredible woman... A terrible loss.... Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you.... She will be greatly missed !!!!"
"Dear Phil, your Mom - what can I say. She made me laugh til I cried. Always looked forward flying with her. I know she's up there now telling a few jokes. She was one of the most vivacious, beautiful people I've ever met. May she rest in Peace."
Your Mom always had a smile on her face whenever I would see her passing through JFK....I worked at the gates and she always had a story about her flts for me...She was full of life...I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing...I hope she did not suffer. She willl be watching over you from heaven..My prayers for you and your family!"
"it's incredible that you are gone,I'm devastated.you were always there with advice and support. made me laugh,oh you made me laugh.I will miss you always but i will never forget you! Thank you for being my friend,much love,Wendy"
"Phil, your Mom was so generous. I have and will always remember her for being there for me at my times of need. I am glad I was there for her many times over the years....with lots of laughter in between.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Mom. Phil, you were #1 in her life...and she was soooo proud of you. Hugs & love to you 'Leenda'"
""To live in the hearts of those left behind, is not to die". In my mind, you'll live on - I have so many wonderful memories, and I am grateful for the laughter we shared. with love and a heavy heart, I will keep you with me."
"Phil, you were your Mother's shining glory. She glowed when she spoke of you and you know how proud she is of you. Please know that as a friend of your Mom's I am also there for you. Reach out if I can be of help or to just lend you my ear.
Linda, you are so special to me and I miss you now and know that I always will. You have touched so many souls."
"Dear Philip: I knew your Mom in Hawaii in the 1970's and along with Pam we all loved and enjoyed our marvelous time there. Your mom was a very special lady and I think your mother's greatest legacy will be in the wonderful child she raised. She was so very proud of you. I hope that you will find the inner strength to get you through this sad time knowing how loved she was."
"As we passed in the halls of BA on a daily basis I would call "Dewberry" and 40+ years later thanks to connecting on facebook I could still pick up the phone and call "Dewberry"! You will be missed by many and I am grateful to call you my friend. Peace be with you now dear, sweet and beautiful lady."
"My husband Gary Hardaway and I met Linda at Fuzzstock, and we were delighted with her. She was a sweet, fragile beauty. We are both so sorry for her and for her family. You are all in our thoughts."
"She is being held tightly in the arms of the lord right now.May peace be with you Linda.No more pain......rest easy girlfriend."
"I am so sad that Linda is no longer a part of my life! I always admired her and your sweet posts to me on Facebook. I will always remember you and all the fun times at BA. Rest in peace my friend!"
"An acquaintance from long ago...a friend from a short time ago, But that will last forever. Rest in Peace, Linda."
""To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" I know you are with our heavenly Father now and have everlasting peace. I enjoyed our conversations.....from reminiscing about high school to comparing notes on our lives today. I will miss you, sweet friend."
"I only knew you through my husband, Eric, who loved you. If E loves you, then I love you. I tried to see you the last visit I had in CT. I'm sorry we didn't see each other. E spoke of you often, made sure he called you regularly, & mentioned you faithfully to our Heavenly Father. My heart hurts for your family & my husband who will never fix this hole in their hearts."
""Dewbsie"!!!!! I love you BIG .....and you know it. I've written several tributes, and have erased them all..... I can scarcely comment on one of the sweetest, most innocent souls I know. We got to be thisclose after all this time, and for that I'm glad. Linda, I love you and we will see you SOON. God bless Philip and all of us who love you......."
"We were not close in school, but I remember your bright energy and ready smile. I enjoyed our connection on FB, reading about your many adventures and spending time with you at Fuzz Mountain. The world has lost one of its lights and we have lost a dear friend. Rest in peace, dear Linda."
"Friends are friends forever if the Lord's the Lord of them...It's more than a song. Our renewed friendship on Facebook after so many years of doing our "own thing" has meant so much to me. News of your death has me reeling and considering my own mortality. Having made peace with God assures me that we will indeed meet again, just inside the Eastern Gate. You are missed. RIP"
"This lady hardly remembered me from BA due to my exit but we found a mutual friend in Deborah Wilson and some stories.I named her "Edie" due to a funny story she told me.She would tell me she understood me and assured us an eternal friendship which was mutual with me and very respected.I will think about her whenever I see a duck because we had a little fun with ducks.RIP dear Linda."
"Linda, I was so happy to get you back in my life again, after so many years. We have been friends a long time. You always brought joy to people around you. Heaven must be cheering with your beautiful smile. Words cannot describe how sad I feel. Rest in Peace my dear friend."
"Linda, I remember when....lots of times. I remembered when you told me about your renewed faith in Jesus the last night I saw you back in 2004 or 2005 at our Sunnyvale home. I will miss you but I am confident in who is in charge of the universe. Stand in His presence friend. Glory in His light! Praise His name with all the angels and saints! Love Rusty"
"It is heartbreaking that you are gone, and I actually cannot believe it at this point. I am so happy that you knew our Lord, and that you will hurt no longer in His arms. I will miss you, and will try to fill the spot you left in my mom's life as her best friend! I love you."
"My life has been changed forever, my forever best friend. Since meeting you in Hawaii back in the 70's, we have had so many wonderful and loving memories. I am so glad that we were able to go back to Hawaii last year, where you learned to surf. You were so excited .I will also never forget your last trip to California in Aug. I will love you forever. RIP"
"Words can not even begin to convey the void that I feel knowing that I will never again be able to share a laugh or a visit with ever again! You were always like a breath of fresh air. You exuded such energy and effervescence! You were an absolute joy to be in the prescence of. You were always so willing to do what you could for others. I will hold you in my heart forever. RIP Sweet Linda."
"I can't imagine life without you after our almost 40 year friendship. Who will I call when I have these funny thoughts only you would understand. And talk about our aches and pains. I know you are in no pain anymore but with your heavenly father and mom, dad and brother. I love you and may you rest in peace dear friend."
"I will always love and miss you, Mom."
