Dear Zeibert family,
I was so very saddened to hear of Linda’s passing. I have such fond memories of her teasing her younger brother Joe..like only brothers and sisters do. I can still hear her laughing, as she did even when she was also sad.
My heart goes out to you Jeff, and Angie, and all of you Zeibert family!
I still think of you often. My loving condolences to you all. I believe she is with her family in heaven now.
