So sorry to hear about Linda. Was hoping to attend her celebration of life in order to offer my condolences in person however personal issues prevented me from attending. I want to tell you Bruce that your friendship at the Goldeye games was so important to me especially dealing with Bob. Please take care and remember that you have friends out there that you can lean on as well. Brenda Knight - Posted by: Brenda Knight (Friend) on: Mar 25, 2023
Thinking of you today as you say goodbye to your dear Linda/Mom. Our paths crossed a few times over the years through our mutual friend Claire. One memorable day was a trip to Tinkertown with our 6 year old boys and Claire's 3 girls. We shared a tear but had a glorious day. Our condolences to all. - Posted by: Bev Friesen (acquaintance) on: Mar 24, 2023
Our son, Kyle was Winnipeg Goldeye and had the extremely good fortune to land at the Ward's home as his host family. We are grateful for all they did for Kyle the two years he was with them, including treating him like their own. We visited Kyle and became quick friends with Linda and Bruce.. how could you not!! They made a visit to us in California and our bond became even stronger. Over the years we have stayed in contact and shared a great long distance friendship. We are so terribly sad for the passing of Linda and the pain she and Bruce suffered from this devastating disease. We are so proud and inspired by her courageous fight, strength and dignity in the way she handled all this. Our lives are forever changed for the better by our paths crossing all those years ago. Bruce we are so very sorry and sad for your and our loss and truly hope you find comfort and peace that she is no longer in pain. She is with you everyday out back in her happy place. Love you! - Posted by: Kit & Dave Anderson (Friends) on: Mar 24, 2023

Linda and I met at Eaton’s in the Advertising Department nearly fifty years ago. Our friendship continued over the years with visits to Linda and Bruce when we were in Manitoba and all their visits to us when we lived in Surrey, Courtenay and Qualicum Beach. We loved our visits with them and have many wonderful memories from our times with both Linda and Bruce. We send our condolences to Bruce and all the family and friends who meant so much to Linda. We share your sorrow. Linda’s friendship, loyalty and love was a gift to us all. Love and hugs from Wanda, Brian and family. - Posted by: Wanda and Brian Widsten (Friend ) on: Mar 04, 2023

Linda & I met when we lived on Prosper Street. As small children, would play in Happyland Park and would occasionally fight as all kids did, but we would make up in the next minute. I reconnected with Linda on Facebook, finding we shared the same last names when we each married. We both loved dogs & had made plans for our dogs to meet. But time ran out. I am so very sorry for your loss. - Posted by: Christine (Hallem) Ward (Childhood friend) on: Mar 04, 2023
