  12. I am very sorry to hear about the loss of Linda. I just found out on 03/17/2013. I missed saying goodbye because I didn’t know she was sick. She was & always will be one of my best friends. I loved being a part of her family and watching the grandchildren grow with her. She was my Matron of Honor because I love her dearly. We had so many wonderful times playing pool and hanging together. People’s lives have a habit of going down different roads, so it’s been a few years since I saw her, but I’ve thought of her quite often. I love Linda dearly and will miss her very much. Thank you Linda for making me a part of your Family for so many years. May the memories keep the Family strong. God bless to you all.

    Love, Kellie Dyer

  13. I just heard and I am sorry I stayed away so long. My sympathies to the family…I will miss her…my dart partner and friend.
