      Having had the pleasure of working with both Linda and Sybil at The VEC, I know the joy this family misses. Letting love bond them ever tighter, you will see Linda’s love sparkle in each of you. Keep in mind Jehovah God’s promise of a resurrection which Jesus demonstrated.

    To the family
    It is with a very heavy heart that I send expressions of sympathy to her children Nona, Tyrone and Tisha.

    The Stith Edwards children are deeply saddened by news of her passing. She was so beautiful. We cherished many moments with her growing up with you all. She was always so kind to us especially our eldest sister Quita. Linda was an awesome role model

    Again, please know that we have the entire family lifted up in prayer. To God be the glory
