Jeffrey Collins from Naples, FL

"Linda was the first love of my life so when I heard she had passed, I sat down and reflected on our time together. Even back in 1969 she was an incredible person. So full of life and what a great personality. Her smile was always contagious. She was by far the cutest girl at Hershey high school, and having her as my girlfriend will always be very special.I don’t know anything about her past those years, but her family was lucky to have her and can’t even imagine how much she will be missed by them. Needless to say, she was a very special and I’m sure many people share that opinion."

I pray for your hearts' healing and enjoy your memories of all your times together. I love you and will be "here" for you if you want me. With much love and care, Cherrie Kolben Heidemann-Oglesby and David T. Oglesby"

Linda (Novak) Campo from Geneva, IL

"Dear Rich, Richard, Lauren and Lindsey, I just learned that Linda passed. I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will be greatly missed. I enjoyed the years I spent together with her when you all were young. Neighborhood parties, Halloween trick or treating and Cub Scouts to name a few. I remember her smiling face and upbeat positive personality. It is never easy to say goodbye but in time I pray that you will find comfort in the memories of treasured times together with her. Linda (Novak) Campo"
