    I met Linda when she was a roommate with Barb. One of my fondest memories of Linda was when we all decided to go to Hoka, MN to visit Rhonda. We had so much fun, hooting and hollering, laughing. Or going to someone’s cabin, getting some sun during the day, and then going out at night. Linda was vivacious and fun. She had a heart as big as anything. May your memories bring you some comfort. You’re in our prayers.

    To the family of Linda Drew-
    The sudden news of Linda has me remembering her smile, wonderful laugh and friendship. I first was blessed by working with Linda while doing Census work. I then was fortunate to see her on my weekly stops at Wells Fargo. She was always brightening my day and I am positive many others. She has such a great big heart and love for others. I will truly miss her smile and laugh. She has touched so many people during her walk in life. God bless her grandchildren, children, husband and family and friends. May the memories of Linda help you heal.
