    Stephanie, we were heartbroken to hear about Linda. We use to have so much fun with her. To this day, her laugh is one of our favorites. Hearing Linda laugh just made everyone around her want to laugh. I know one thing for sure, no mother could love a daughter more than Linda loved you. I hope you find comfort in knowing that. Heartfelt sympathy, Diane and Deby Nichols

  4. Steph & Family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I know the past three months have been incredibly difficult. I’m so glad that Linda found peace fairly quickly considering the intensity of her disease. I know the next few days will be hard and emotional. I wish you all calm and peace at this time and in the future. I’m sorry I can’t be there. You know I would be if I could.
    Love to all of you.

    the only person that I have ever known that could keep Dale McLaughlin in line. As I think back she may be the only person that I know that could keep everyone in line.
    She was a great person and I will miss her dearly.
    Who am I going to argue with now?
    Your loving friend forever
