2 Tributes for “Linda Anderson

    When Linda was just a kid, she was always inventing and building things. We lived on a one way road with little traffic. We would get pieces of chalk or drywall and draw floorplans or hopscotch or tic tac toe, faces on the road. We would tunnel through snowbanks making igloo hideaways. We would make mazes in the snow by clearing it with our feet and making walls. Throw the sheets over the clothes line to make a tent. There is so much more! She was also a caregiver. We would take her Dad his lunch a mile up the road, knowing he would share his peanut butter/jelly sandwiches with us. Feeding her mom’s chickens, bunnies, dogs, cats and the pigs. Linda learned how to change a tire, fix the brakes on the car and began taking care of her parents in her own way. When they got older she took care of them, managing her Mom’s diabetes and her Dad’s oxygen tank. She managed her parents home and her own home. Linda didn’t ask for much for herself when she was young. She would figure out how to make do with what she had. Linda was my oldest friend, and we spent so much time together growing up. The visits got fewer and phone calls sporadic as time went by. Linda was with me in mind and heart for over sixty years. She knew me and I knew her through everything our lives turned out to be. She is now free of pain, her children now carry the pain of losing her. Linda is still with us in her spirit and the memories she gave us. God has given us a new angel to watch over us all.
