Sorry for your loss Jennifer and Terry. I will be thinking of you two during this time. Take care.— Jamie McClinchey, April 7, 2022
I'm so sorry and shocked to hear about the passing of my first real best friend, Linda. Linda and I met and grew up in Rexdale, we went to public, middle and high school together. I taught Linda how to drive in my 1967 Mustang. We actually got pulled over by a Police Officer for driving too slow. I visited Linda at her farm, our children got to play together. We lost touch for a while but reconnected and I visited her in Mount Forest. We were so shocked to see how similar our homes and decor were. We started meeting for lunch in Orangeville in the spring and fall and caught up. We were actually planning our next lunch after this winter was over.
Ken, Jennifer and Family - I am so sorry for your loss.
I will miss you Linda. You will always be my first real best friend. Love you.
Dear Ken, Jennifer, David, it is with great shock and sadness to hear of Linda's, your Mom's passing. During the first year of Covid, we had reconnected through Diane Keppler's passing and were hopeful to meet for future lunch after Covid had ended!
Very much regret that those plans didn't happen...Linda and I worked together at HICL those many years and her laughter, witty comebacks were a blessing to myself, her co-workers and patients. Her care and concern for others was evident in our daily working environment. Her abscence in your lives will be extremely heartbreaking and I pray that the memories all of you made together will help a little at this time. I am so sorry for your loss.
Ken and family. Please accept our condolences on Linda's passing. I will miss her smile and wave on your morning walks! Treasure your memories.— Mike and Deb David, April 6, 2022
So very saddened to hear this news. Linda worked with me for many years in Orangeville at Hospitals In-Common Lab. She was a valued employee loved by her coworkers and patients who were frequent visitors. We always had fun at work, Linda had a great sense of humour! I remember how happy she was when she met Ken and they married and she was so proud of her children and grandchildren. I regret that I didn’t keep in touch after I retired. Linda was way too young to be taken from us. She will be missed!— Lynda Hall, April 6, 2022

To Ken and families. I am truly sorry you lost Linda. We also lost her as a good friend, and fellow Euchre player. The laughs we shared will never be forgotten.
Linda was always ready for an adventure, be it a car ride, euchre game, lunch out or just a good old visit. She loved her walks with Ken and Sadie. She will be missed.
Rest In Peace Linda.
My deepest condolences to you, Ken and family, for your loss. Linda was such a lovely person to be with. I will miss our chats over the back fence.— Renate Gross, April 6, 2022
