Aunt Joan, Uncle Bud, Patty, Nancy & Family, With our deepest sympathy. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
I will remember Linda from the last time I saw her at Laura's wedding. She really looked happy then and seemed to really enjoy being with the family. She is at peace now in God's loving hands. If there is anything we can do, please let us know.
Carol and John Fogle,
Harmony, PA

She is with God now in heaven and family and friends will see her again one day.


On August 22nd at 5:15 pm the Sisters of St. Joseph and members of the community gathered to pay vigil to Linda.


God, we are gathering to pray in memory of Linda, a victim of violence. We pray with family, friends and neighbors for peace and healing. Teach us the sanctity of human life, of human love. Help us value family life and help us to live with love and in peace with one another.
