Condolence & Memory Journal

I happened to be looking at an obituary of a friend whose service is being held on Thurs,Aug 26th. I happened to look at other obituaries when I saw that Linda had passed away. I was unaware of it when it occurred and just wanted to let her family know how sorry I am for your loss. I lost touch with Lindaany years ago. I grew up in Bridgewater next to the Bates. How well I remember Linda as well as her brother Stanley and also Johnnie. My twin brother Brian and I spent our childhood on North St. Eventhough I lost touch with Linda,I remember what a dear friend she was to me. Gone but not forgotten, Linda remains in the hearts of so many.
My deepest sympathy,Marcia (Bennett)

I have had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Peterson through her son, Scot. and for over 20 years i have seen her a few times a year at Oak Bluffs where the family spent summers since i have known them. I came over (from Falmouth) several times a year and she was always so nice and inviting to me and my family. She was truly a kind woman that was so proud of her sons, their wife's and of course her grandkids.

We (Kelley, Sean, Ryan and myself) just wanted to wish the family the best over this hard time and tell you how much we appreciated her welcoming smile, her interest in catching up on life and the hospitality she showed us over the years.

Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.

Everyone in our family loved Linda. She always greeted you with a warm smile and spoke to everyone at family gatherings such as the birthday parties or Christmas Eve celebrations at her in-laws' home (my aunt and uncle's home) in Easton. I believe she mastered the art of making Swedish meatballs that everyone enjoyed for the Christmas Eve Smorgasbord. I may have been just a cousin, but we shared Gram and Gramps who absolutely adored her. My favorite story about Linda is when she told me about boating down the canal in hers and Em's first boat. A huge tanker passed them rather quickly and Em didn't get the boat righted into the wake in time. Everything in the boat went all over the place. She mentioned she thought she was a goner for sure, but they made it back to their slip. Em, of course, redid the interior so anything loose like pots and pans would be secure. The stories Linda could tell about the boating escapades! Linda will be missed by all.

Linda was my dear friend and I will miss her. We loved to clothes shop and always finished our fun with a trip to Culver's for ice cream. She was a good Pickleball player, too - and that's how we met. She will not be forgotten.

Linda, Was a very special person that had a great zest for life and everything that went her way, Linda loved her family and friends and will leave an empty hole in the hearts of a lot of people! I for one will miss seeing her, hand in hand, on the Oak Bluffs Harbor walking to visit with her son and daughter-in-laws home on the harbor. Eric, be strong your family and friends will be around to help you with that journey.....R. I. P....Linda
