Vignos Family, 

Deeply sorry to each of you - I know she was a special sister!  I have comfort that she is now in heaven with our beloved Uncle Tom and my brothers, Don and Doug - I can hear the music playing and Linda leading the group with a, "let's do that number one more time!".  May we all have comfort in knowing that Linda was truly a special person with a very sweet smile that she shared with all of us!

Chas, I am so, so sorry to hear about Linda's passing. She was a true Spitfire in all the best senses of the word. I will pray for you and your family. I wish I could be there.

So Sorry for your loss,my thoughts and prayers are with you

To Scott, Heather and the Vignos family, my hearts breaks for you. I didn't know Linda, however I know she was special because she was a Vignos. You are such a loving, giving family; I'm sorry you have to feel this pain. My deepest sympathy to all who loved her.

Annie we prayed hard but apparently God needed her more.   My thoughts and love are with you always.  I will continue to pray God rains His many Blessings on your family. 

My condolences to the family. I went to college with  Linda at Stark Technical College plus her Aunt Ruth's late husband Tim was a cousin to my Mom. During college we played many hands of Pinnacle after studying oh the fun we had! May she Rest In Peace in God's Heavenly Kingdom. 

Linda was an unforgettable woman.  I met her through Altrusa and had the good fortune of staying in her home when I made a club visit to the DFW club. She was a gracious hostess.  Her work in Altrusa was life changing for many in her community.  Her wit and humor brought joy to many of us - I smile now just remembering her at Altrusa Conferences and her spunky personality that was exhibited in many ways.  One of my favorites was her lyrics to Hot Flash Pneumonia and the Menopausal Flu sung to, yes, Rock n Roll Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu when we were in Lubbock in 2010.  Such a force she was!  Heaven has to be much livelier with her presence. I know my life was richer for having known her.  My sincere condolences to her family.
