  1. Our deepest condolences to Linda, Joe and the family. I will always remember Aunt Dorothy’s infectious smile and laughter and of course her baked delicacies – including the best carrot cake i’ve ever had. Treasure all the fond memories.
    Love Brian Laura and Sam Markovich

  2. We just heard of your moms passing. Our deepest sympathy. We will never forget all the happy times we all had together, especially Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas. Your mom certainly enjoyed getting together with mom. Dorothy was a kind and loving person. I know you have many wonderful memories to keep with you always. Love

  3. Dear Linda and family,
    My deepest sympathy to you and your family as I just learned of your mother’s recent passing. She is at peace and happily reunited with your dear dad. Many cherished memories will live in your heart forever.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time.

  4. Hi Linda and Joe. My mother let me know that Dorothy passed away and I wanted to wish you my condolences. I’ll always remember coming over to Dorothy and Lyle’s and the smell of baking that filled their house. I also think that Linda came up with one of the greatest Christmas gifts for a little kid (sleeping bags for me and Brian). It makes a child think that they’re getting closer to being grown up to be able to go off into the woods (or maybe just the back yard or the bedroom) and camping out in your sleeping bag. I’m pretty sure I was only 1/2 the length of the sleeping bag when it arrived. Thanks and I hope you are both well and can let your best memories comfort you!

  5. Wanted to express our deepest sympathy to you, Linda and Joe and to your family. May your memories give you comfort at this time and help you through the days ahead.

  6. Linda and the entire Gibbs Family
    We send our deepest condolences. It’s always the good memories that will help the most.
    Maggie and Brian

  8. Linda, Joe, Jennifer, Dan and family it’s hard to say good bye to someone you have loved so much, my deepest sympathy to each of you. Linda, I have so many memories of times with Dorothy while I was growing up, going shopping you both. Sitting at your kitchen table, talking, laughing and sharing lives secrets and plans with you both. I’m sure you have many more memories that will surface during this time and you talk with people who knew and loved her too. Keep those memories close. (((HUGS))) and Love to you all xo xo Deanna
