She suffered quietly for years with Stage 4 Colon Cancer which ultimately took her from us ... She was every inch the CareTaker of her family and continued working until she had to be hospitalized and could no longer function as she had for years and years.
I remember how excited she was when she finally got in touch with long lost relatives... She was elated!!... It was one of the few times I recall she was truly overcome with happiness. Family meant everything to her...
Linda was one of those very rare people always selfless, loving, caring and kind... She always put her loved ones first which included a broad spectrum of people who crossed her path... she had a larger than life love for her immediate family always... no matter what she was going through personally...nothing would stop her giving unconditional love and care to them...
Linda spent 30 years working as a realtor... it was a part of her DNA...She truly loved her work and helping her clients achieve their dreams... throughout her years in real estate she established many friendships and alliances with those in the industry and most importantly the complete trust and friendships of her many many clients who would only work with Linda... under no circumstances would they consider anyone else... they would literally wait until Linda could assist them... this definitely speaks volumes to the kind of person Linda was.
Daughter Nicci wants you to know Linda also cared about her community... she loved to give back. She volunteered at a battered woman's shelter for many years and worked at a group home where she fostered relationships with many young girls often going above and beyond for them. I remember times when we were scheduled to get together for some fun time she would postpone our fun due to a last minute need for help. Linda made herself available to anyone in need of help and support.
Linda's Daughter, Nicci & Linda's Loving Husband , Marvin... were constantly with Linda through everything. The costs to bury & celebrate Linda are a major hurdle for the family to bear... and as you can well imagine causing additional stress to Nicci & Marvin...
If any of you met, knew, worked with, spent time with, ever laughed. ate shrimp with Linda... it would be a blessing if you could help Linda's family at this time of need.
If you're able to contribute any amount to help the family put Linda "LLCoolP" to rest... the family would be forever grateful. Any and All Donations will be sent directly to Marvin & Nicci to allow them to pay for all expenses...
(Please pardon our need to ask for help but we also need to receive any donations ASAP... we realize Money doesnt grow on trees any amount u can spare will be gladly received)
