    Dear Kern Family,

    It was sad news to learn of Linda’s passing. She was a kind and fun-loving person. She and the entire Kern family were good friends with my family. We shared many good times together camping in some of Indiana’s state parks and recreation areas. Those memories are still with me and I am so sorry for your loss.

    Linda was my across the street neighbor in Edwardsburg. We shared many interests and both worked at Miles/Bayer. I lost touch with her in recent years but always carried her in my heart and will continue to do so. I would love to be in touch with Jason and Julie.
