Micki and I send our deepest and most sincere thoughts and prayers to Dave, Darren, Julie and Stephanie. Linda as well as the entire Ross family made growing up on Indian Hollow an incredible childhood. Linda was like a second Mom who was always willing to entertain the neighborhood gang and even coached me through tryouts for Drum Major in the Midview band. Micki remembers how nice and welcoming Linda was to her when we were dating and how she made her feel part of the extended Biltz family. I wish we could make the trip to give the Ross family one big hug...we are going to miss her!

My sincere sympathy to Julie and the Ross family. Your mom was amazing! A happy spirit, loved her family, and loved life. She was supportive, fun, and a rock for you all. You know it's Fins Up in heaven this week! The angels are chilling out to "One Particular Harbor" with Linda on lead vocals. Treasure the happy memories of your mom. My prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

Mom Ross is the BEST Mother In Law EVER! I am going to miss our random chats and facebook private messages. She was the calm in many of my storms. Never really said much just recognized what we were going through at the time and how she handled those situations when she was raising her kids. Never telling me how to raise the kids just how to survive them She has done so many great things for me I will always be grateful. When I had Jay David Ross she came and lived at our house for a week and slept on a horrible couch to care for Jay. While I was in ICU after having him. She was acting as a brand new Mom in her 60\\\'s. She was exhausted and did a great Job. Jay will be 8 years old in 10 days. That first week of his life with Grandma Ross was special to them both. I am going to miss reminding my husband to make sure he called his mom today. I will have to remind myself not to remind him everyday. Darren and his Mom loved talking about Sports together. Until we meet again MOM :-(

Where do we start? We lived next door to Dave and Linda on Indian Hollow from the 60\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s until 1983. We raised our kids together. Managed Hot Stove with their family. Planned and executed some of the best scavenger hunts and parties know to mankind. Skiing out to Brandywine, Beta Sigma Phi functions. Linda was and is a dear part of our Laporte family. I hope our boys and her children keep those memories alive. She would like that because that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s who she was. Prayers and blessings to our old pal Dave, my Garden Island deer hunting buddy. God looks after good people and that personifies the Ross family. Save a place for us Linda!

Linda was truly the best neighbor anyone could have. She welcomed my family to the neighborhood and generously shared her pool in the summer with everyone. Linda was kind, friendly and very proud of her family....she would do anything to help others. What a sweet lady! As God welcomes her into heaven, may God surround her family with Love and Light to care for each other at this sad time. I know she will watch over you all, too. Hugs, Doraine Meldrum Toms
