    Shirley & Floyd, so sorry to hear about Linda’s passing. Mother mentioned her when we were home recently so I did know that she hadn’t been well.
    regards, Alma

  7. My sons and I were very saddened to read the news of Linda’s death. Blake and David remember Mrs. Haun as their kind and gentle guide in her Grade 2 class at Cedarbrae School. When she was widowed, we talked about her grief but also her courage to go on because of her son and daughter. It was a very tough teaching year for her. I remember meeting up with her at Teachers Conventions or at the grocery store where she would regale me with her travels to distant lands and the joy of becoming a grandmother. She is gone too soon. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
    Liza Bennett, Blake and David Neilsen.

  11. “Dear Heather,
    I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am that Linda had to go so early. I have no idea how she made the trip home, but selfishly, I am so grateful she did. As sad as it made me to see Linda in that condition, you will never know how glad I was to see her & get to say goodbye (which was extremely hard). She reminded me so much of Mum & I take some comfort in knowing that they are now together. I wish it would have been possible for me to be out there with you at this difficult time, but please know that I am thinking about you. If there is anything you need, please let me know.
    Love you,
    Paula xo

    Our family was blessed to have Linda teach not one, but two of our children who blossomed with her care and talent for teaching. I had many conversations about life, love and family with Linda whose wisdom and grace was much appreciated. Linda was a woman who loved well and was loved much in return. Our deepest sympathies to her family.
