Such a wonderful soul you were here on earth. Hope you are happy and whole again in Heaven. You will be missed. I'll always remember the dances at Mainland High School and in Ocean City. We did have fun. Till we all meet again.

To Linda's family.....I am so saddened to read of Linda's passing. My heart goes out to you all. Although it has been so so many years since I've seen Linda...the memories of times with her are fresh in my mind. My mom, Pat Wallace-Koch, always considered Linda a "forever friend." I remember a low point in my mom's life when my sister and I were little girls, Linda and Joyce took us in and gave us a loving home for months down in Florida. Linda and Joyce's joy and laughter was what brought my mom's strength back. I am sure my mom and Linda are in heaven reminiscing (especially about Zaberers), dancing, laughing and toasting to good times and good friends. I will never forget you dear Linda Haley...with love and sympathy, Brenda Wallace

We only had the privilege of knowing Linda a little more than 6 years. I am so glad we had that time to get to know & love her. She was a faithful friend to many, including Harley, our dog. We were so blessed to have Linda stay at our house and take of Harley whenever we traveled. It was such a relief. They, too, loved each other. She will forever be in our memory & heart. Love you Linda. May you find peace & grace, faithful servant.
