Larry,

I was very sad to hear of Linda?s passing. She was always very kind to me and I always appreciated her support while I played at Purdue. I always enjoyed seeing her at our games and I always appreciated her hospitality whenever we would go over to your house for a meal during the season. I pray that the Lord would provide you with comfort and peace during this time.

Sincerely,
Matt Carroll

Dear Larry,
I was so shocked and saddened to hear about the sudden passing of Linda. My heart goes out to you and to all your friends and family. I had the pleasure of spending some time talking to Linda on a few different occasions, one being a Purdue women&s volleyball game where we sat together and chatted throughout the game. She was a lovely person who will be missed greatly. I am happy that I had the opportunity to meet her on my visits to see Chris at Purdue. Please accept my deepest sympathy. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Love and prayers are with you all at this difficult time and I will always treasure the fun times I had with Linda if it was enjoying a quilt store in San Antonio, or eating wonderful fried chicken in Atlanta, or enjoying the breath taking sights along Lake Louise, I will always wonder why she had to leave us so soon, but feel so forever grateful that we met, and had the wonder of friendship. Please know that she is in my thoughts so often and I will always remember her wonderful smile and eyes full of laughter.

Larry,

I am deeply sorry for your loss. We all know what an amazing person Linda was! I had no idea that she had been in the hospital as of lately, and the Purdue AT family made sure everyone knew of the situation as soon as possible. It shows how much you and her are loved by the people that come through Purdue one way or another. Again, I am truly sorry and saddened by the loss of Linda. If there is anything I can do now or in the future, let me know.
