Dear Kurtyka Family,
So sorry to hear of the passing of Linda. I spent a lot of time up the farm playing as a kid
we would eat pears off the pear trees till we had belly aches and we would sneak in the wood crock and eat the pickles in the brine. I enjoy the verse in the Bible at Revelation 21:4
where it says:" God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and deatd will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away." That is a promise from God we have to look forward to in the near future.
I am a cousin, our Kurtyka grandfathers married our grandmothers twin sisters.
Again you all have my sympathy. Love from your cousin Shirley

My condolences and prayers to Linda's family. I was saddened to hear the news today about her passing. She was a wonderful woman and I enjoyed her company when she would come hang out in the salon and chat with me. She will be missed by many.
Her stylist~😘
