"Dear Terry family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26. To learn more about God's promises, go to"

"Every memory I have of Mrs. Terry starts with her smiling. Everytime I saw her you could see the joy of life in her eyes and feel her positive energy. I have never met someone quite like her... She has been such an inspiration and her kindness will never be forgotten. Thank you for reminding us all to be thankful for what truly matters in life."

I am so saddened to hear of Linda's death.  It was a pleasure working with her at Murdoch; if she ever had a bad day she never showed it.  I've looked forward each spring to the Staff Development Reunions she organized; there will be a huge void this year."

"Tommy, Gayle and Family it is great sadness to hear of Linda's passing. Linda was a special friend and I will miss her hugs in passing. God needed a SPECIAL ANGEL  to serve him in Heaven.  I know her parents are happy to have her in their presence. Always remember Linda was loved by all.  If anyone is walking the streets of Gold then Linda is there.  May we meet again. RIP my friend."

"Linda and I were first cousins in the Green family.  I was the oldest and she was the next, so we were always close even though we did not see each other often.  I will miss her wonderful smile; her big hugs; and her awesome love for everyone, especially family.  Linda was always the one who tried to keep everybody together.  She loved her Lord and served him everyday in her good deeds.  She told me she did not use  e-mail, because she wanted to talk to her friends.  I can imagine her running around in Heaven hugging everybody.  What great memories Linda leaves behind.  May her family find comfort in knowing that Linda lived her life while she was on this earth and that she is with Jesus now.
May God bless each of you now and may we be challenged to do as many good deeds as she did.  You will always be in my heart Linda."

"Tommy, Gayle and Neal:

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Linda.  She was such a great lady, and I always thought a lot of her.  Every time I would see her, she would always give me a big hug, and tell me she was so glad to see me.  I have many great memories of her when Neal and I were in high school and in the band.  You all are in my thoughts and prayers.  

Amy Averett Wilder"

"Linda and I share the same grandson (Dillon). I was grandma; she was Nana.  I think Dillon has become a better man for having known such a wonderful grandmother like Nana.

My daughter Wendy posted a nice statement on Facebook which is very true. Heaven received an angel, not another angel, a special angel. Linda we will miss you.  You were always so sweet to our family and you will be missed.

To Tommy - When Linda left this earth, she left something special behind because she is never really gone; she will always be in your heart because she is your forever valentine. Mary & James"

"Linda and I worked together at Murdoch and of all the people in our building, she was the first who welcomed me and showed me true friendship. She and Hazel Lyon took me under their wing and treated me like their daughter. Linda was kind and so caring to me and it helped me so much to adjust at working in such a different environment. After I left Murdoch I still maintained a friendship with Linda and no matter where I saw her, she always gave me her special hug and made me feel that she cared for me. I am so deeply sorry and saddened at her unexpected passing. She will be greatly missed by so many of us and I do pray for Tommy and her kids and extended family. You have all lost a real jewel. May God bless each of you."

We sure find comfort in knowing that she is in her glory with our Lord in heaven where we will see her again one day.  Love and prayers for you all.
David, Amy, Rianne and Ryan Greene"
