Her time came too quickly. I am so proud of her valiant effort to stay here as long as she could. She loved her family above everything else. She didn't want to leave you yet. Her goal, to live til her son got home. I pray that he got here to be with her. I only knew her for a little while, but I feel I will know her again one day. I believe she will bless you from Heaven now. My heart and prayers go out to you. I am sorry for this Great loss in your lives.

Your friends at Youthtrack
Linda. . . I love yo so much and just wish I could hug you one last time. I will miss laughing and crying with you.
My deepest sympathies and condolences to the Matthews family. I have a found memory of spending the day with Linda. We meet at cherry hill with Becca and William . Linda was a great aunt and wonderful mom. She loved talking about her kids:)
Sterling and Family,
We were so saddened to hear of the passing of your mother and wife. We only knew her briefly but she was the kind of person you loved the first time you met. I actually remember telling Dave that very thing the first time I spoke with her on the phone before I had even met her! She just radiated sunshine and positivity and you couldn't help but love her immediately. We pray that the Lord will bring you comfort and strength through this heartbreak and give you hope for the time when you'll see her again.
Love and Prayers,
Dave and Mindy Johnson and family
I just barely found out about your passing - I don't know why I found out so late - You were my favorite teacher to work with - I sure enjoyed your calmness and spiritual nature. I am so sorry to hear about your passing - I only assumed the best was happening after my feeble attempts to visit. I now only pray for your family - know you made an impact on my life and I know you loved those Youth you taught - you cared and your scouting legacy is legendary - you will be missed - the only answers of your passing lay in heaven alone.
Sincerely your friend and associate -
I had the privilege of taking care of Linda when she was awaiting the birth of the twins. What a strong, faithful, wonderful lady. I am so sorry for your loss.
I worked with Linda years ago at Youthtrack. So sorry to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
My deepest sympathies and condolences to the Matthes family.
Linda, was the most Christ like person I have ever known. Linda was Mother figure in my life. The world lost a great person and heaven gained a amazing angel. Thoughts are with her family. She always talked about you and loved you very much.
Linda is one of the few sincere people I know. Very few people reach the level of true friendship that Linda easily attained.
