Linda or LindaBell, as I now know you were called by your friends. I still cannot believe you are gone. It has now been over a week. Time flies, but believe me it's never going to feel real. To all of us here at Landsend you were like a mom, a sister and a friend. If I was religious, I would call you an angel, because honestly, you were always there, looking out for everyone physically and figuratively speaking. To say that it will be an adjustment to be outside without you is a major understatement. We will look out for cars and bikes and anything on your behalf! We miss you greatly. Thank you for being a friend and someone we all could always rely on. Tomorrow SUPER is going back to school for the first time since you left and we will all be there for him. Andrea has not left his side. Rest in peace Linda, knowing that people will look out for him. A BIG HUG TO YOU!!!!

Linda, I will always remember you at our family events, whispering in someone's ear to find out what was going on with one family member or another, how you put up with John's constant teasing which you knew was done in love, how you would go out at the summer cookout and pick off all the dang Japanese beetles and shake them up and smash them as they are vile bugs! The funniest memory is girl you had no butt! You were always pulling up your jeans and I always chuckled when I saw you do that as all us Soderstrom gals have big butts :-) I will miss you and we will all make sure Jake always remembers his mother. Love Love Love

Linda, I’ve known you for years from PSI picnics and holiday parties, to camping, to playing Catch Phrase on New Year’s Eve, to just meeting you, John, and my siblings for a drink. You worked with half of my family and it was fun hearing stories- especially of my dad. I always enjoyed and admired your candid humor. You were an organizer, taking care of things for everyone. And now you’re gone. Your loss is felt by all who knew you. You will be missed.

I'd met you before, but my first real conversation I remember having with you was when I went to pick up my sick dad,who you worked with. You were waiting for me in the lobby and made sure we were good to go. Soon after I joined the company, and you were quick to let me know how things "really" were, never afraid to speak your mind. You always had time to take a walk in the garage or pull up a chair and talk about anything and everything. Office picnics or parties had you in the center of it, doing what you do best.The last time I saw you was camping this summer. I remember watching you and John playing games with Jake, and patiently answering all his questions. We sat around the picnic table eating our steak and you made sure everyone had enough food on their plate. I remember thinking how Jake is a mini version of you. Your willingness to always put your family first, and the heart and soul you shared with the people you love is something to truly admire. My heart breaks knowing you're gone, but never to be forgotten.

It's rare to have a friend like Linda in your life. She was special, unique, and a huge presence in our little neighborhood. She was a mother not just to Jake, but to all the kids in our Landsend Crew. We played outside in any weather, drove to a field on a whim to let the kids run around among huge sunflowers, went each morning to the bus stop for the "bus stop gossip," and walked into one another's house whenever we needed something to make dinner with or just wanted to chat. Linda taught us the art of couponing. Anytime I mentioned going out to a specific store or restaurant, Linda would exclaim, "I have a coupon for that!" and would run to get it. Our daily lives revolved around our kids, and Linda's famous joke was "Anything for the children." We would sit outside each evening watching the kids play (sometimes joining them in soccer or four square), us with our wine, Linda with her white Russian. We laughed as the kids played in mud and Linda was always the first to text us after a big rainstorm and ask if we wanted to take the kids puddle splashing. So many amazing memories. We will miss you, dear friend, more than words can ever describe. But your memory lives on in Jake. We will make sure he is loved, that his water bottle is always cold, and that he hears endless stories about how amazing you were.
