Shannon & Larry,

Your mom was always so kind and encouraging to me as a mother and as a fellow educator. She was cheering me on in our last conversation just a few weeks ago. I will remember Linda, always… but especially playing soccer or kickball. I remember kicking the ball around Meme’s yard with Jack, West & Lilibeth one of the last times we were there. As she watched the four of us, she looked at me and said, “Girl… who taught you how to kick a ball?” She taught me that day (side of your foot NOT the front!) and I am forever changed as a kickball player 😉

I know there will be a gap in your family as you grieve her loss now and in the years to come. I am praying that your sadness will be replaced by happy and joyous memories soon. I’m also praying for Kylie, Ty, Nash and Trent who brought so much joy to your parents.

Everybody wishes they would have had a Linda Warner. I think at some point we all got some pops from Linda, but for me it was only because I didn’t want to go to all day SAC! Linda was stern, but so very kind! She will truly be missed by all that knew her. Oh….. she was also had the best sense of humor! Love and partners for all who loves her. 😇

She was an awesome coach and a genuinely caring person. She noticed my leg was swollen and for me to be sure and have my mom take me to a doctor. Dr Pollock was a Urologist and literally saved my life. Turns out I had a severe kidney and bladder bacterial infection that kept me down for like 6 months. She was always watching out for us girls. Years later our paths would cross again; we both attended Ninth and Elm Street Church of Christ were we raised our children. God always puts you were you’re needed the most. Thank you God for placing this beautiful sweet soul in my path.
Prayers for families ♥️🙏🙏🙏♥️
