“Linda had such a big, wonderful heart. She loved life, her family, her friends, her students and her babies, namely the many Irish Setters and Gordon Setters. She did battle with an aggressive brain tumor with grace and style, never giving up but eventually going gently into that good night. We were going to be like the "Golden Girls" some day but we will still be the "Golden Angels". An inspiring teacher, I am sure she made a major difference in many a student's life. The world will never look or feel the same without "Lovely Lindy" in it. XOXO”

Inspirational best friend!
“A best friend to me! She was an inspiration to all of us. I continue to be impressed with how upbeat she was in handling this horrible disease and all the treatments she had to endure. She still could laugh and joke with me in spite of it all. I have fond memories of Linda at Roosevelt High School and of our "girls" trip to Florida! I miss her and will always treasure what we had! ”

“Please accept my deepest sympathies and condolences for the whole family at the loss of Mrs Randall. I didn't have her for typing, but had Mr Randall. I know she was well-loved and will be sorely missed. May God comfort you, wrap His arms around you, and carry you through the deep pain of this loss. ”
