    I am so very sorry to hear this Ron for you & your family. You and Linda played such an important role in my life when I moved to Cockeysville as a naive 20 year old nurse coming to the big city of Baltimore. Prayers for all of you at this time. I know Linda is with Our Lord. We will all see her again. Much love to you and the children & their families. It seems like a short time ago I was walking down the steps and knocking on your door. There are not enough words of gratitude for the positive difference you made in my life.
    Love, Susan

    Ron made everyone’s day brighter when I knew him at Hillcrest High School and from the things I’ve read abut Linda, she was the same kind of wonderful person. The two of you have been a blessing to the world. The good news is that life doesn’t end at death. Linda is happy now in her new life, and her spirit is with her family and friends, helping and comforting them in every way she can.
