  1. Our deepest sympathy, and heart felt thoughts, to all of Linda’s family during this very difficult time. Linda was a barber at Ray Yandow’s Barber Shop in Essex Jct., VT prior to her employment with the US Government (DHS). Linda worked with me for several years at the Williston, VT DHS office where we shared many experiences through our friendship and career. I am thankful that facebook brought us back together following our individual retirement from the DHS and mutual interest in gardening. May your memories of Linda fill your hearts with joy and bring a smile to your face when you think of her. Memories are forever.

I will miss talking with her on Facebook where we always kept in touch with one another. Rest in peace my friend.
