    I wanted to extend my sympathy to all of you. Although it’s been several years since we’ve visited, I have good memories of Linda. Linda was a big help to us when Mother was sick so many years ago. She really was a people person and we know you will miss her. I will keep you in my prayers.

    To the family of Linda Nipper, I would like to express my sincere sympathy to you in behalf of Sarah McAhren. Linda was probably one of her best friends. Aunt Sarah often ask me about Linda, and now I will have to tell her the sad news….Linda and her one of her friends, a few years ago, went to the nursing facility and decorated Sarah’s room for Christmas and was always bringing her candy. May I extend my sympathy and thanks. Due to the weather conditions today, I elected not to make the drive from Noblesville. I did appreciate Linda’s daughter calling me on Sunday to notify me of Linda’s passing. God Bless Your Family

    To Linda’s family.
    I did not know Linda, but I am extending you great sympathy on behalf of my sisters Dianne Rice and Lela Jo Camp. We are very sorry for your sad loss. We recently lost Jo as well, but I remember Dianne and Jo talking fondly of Linda when they worked with her at Unilectric. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
