    Smitti, I am so saddened to learn you’ve left us much too soon. I enjoyed our electronic visits and was so happy for you when you became Mrs. Beale. Your photos with Bobby showed the true happiness you had found real happiness with each other. I truly regret that I didn’t get to see you in person. Rest in the warmth of knowing how much you were loved. You will be missed.

    May there be peace for this grieving family and friends who were so close to her and will miss her!! I also went to high school with Smitti. Connected a few years ago, on Facebook, after seeing her after many years, the day she and Bobby got married! We had a mini-school reunion is Branson, and it was so great seeing the happiness in her and Bobby, as they told us they had just been married a few hours before. Each time I have thought of her name, I still picture her as she was in high school. She was strong, independent, and loved to have fun. Rest is peace, Smitti! Blessings for Bobby and her daughter and grandchildren.

    Dear Loved Ones of Linda,
    My heart is sad at the loss of my long time friend aka Smitti. We have known each other since fourth grade. Even though our paths parted from time to time we always came back together again. The last 10 years especially we have spent lots of wonderful and fun times together. I will miss her deeply but we shall see each other again and pick up where we left off as usual some day.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    I knew Linda as Smitti From high school. She was always fun and out spoken! I have enjoyed the last seven years with her on Facebook and seeing all the wonderful pictures of her family. My heart and prayers go out to each one of you. She will be missed by many.

    My thoughts and prayers are with Linda’s family. We enjoyed working together at Chico’s in Kansas City and I enjoyed seeing her when she visited the Lake of The Ozarks after I moved here. We certainly enjoyed working in fashions, buying jewelry together and more. Was so happy for her when she married and was enjoying retirement. Will certainly miss my dear friend Linda. So much appreciated the call from her sister.
