Linda you included me in your life and family in 1987 through ABWA. We became friends who supported each other and traveled together for 34 years. You were always were there when I needed someone to rely on. I am so happy that I decided to visit in July and was able to visit. I will miss your friendship and our travel memories. So glad I visited in July and spent time with you.. Thank you for the influence you had on my life.
Linda was a great lady and a dear friend. She will be sorely missed by many. Warmest thoughts and prayers are with her family, with heartfelt sympathy.
Growing up in Fernandina, Erin was one of my very best friends. Linda was always so welcoming to me in her home. I am sending love to all her family and all who love her.

I'm sincerely sorry for your tremendous loss. I realize that we haven't been family long, but "Grams" was the most lovely lady my husband and I have known. My condolences to her family and friends. Love and prayers to all.
I will always love you, Grammy. You are missed, so terribly.
Was saddened to hear of Linda's transition. Have many fond memories of our working together and lunch with the retired ladies. She will be missed!

Linda J. Little (74) of Fernandina Beach, FL, passed away at her home, on Wednesday October 20th 2021. She was an avid reader and crafter, and she shared her passion for creativity with the world. She was the foundation of her family’s traditions, and will be missed by many, far and wide.
