Diana and I were privileged to serve at Vermillion Baptist Church from 1984-1990. "The Dalton Gang" had been part of the church there long before we arrived. They were not only church members but dear friends and like family. Our youngest son took his first steps into Joe's arms. Dianna and Debbie helped care for our children regularly. Linda was such a great servant playing the piano and serving in multiple ways. In a small church an accomplished piano player is such an important role. But Linda was much more than that. We have been close friends with the Daltons for 34 years. The Dalton family made the trek to our daughter's wedding in Florida in 2004. This was a great blessing to all of us. We look forward to seeing Linda again in Heaven and our prayers go to the Dalton family. Love in Christ, Pastor David and Diana Conrad and family

We would like to express our sincere condolences to the Dalton (Harlan) families in the passing of Linda. I remember Linda as I grew up with the two girls - great lady. A person deeply close with her family, church and family activities. This is a time to reflect on the memories, do not let them go. She will forever be with you. Time will pass, sorrow will lessen, but the memories will be forever.

Pease with the Dalton and Harlan families.
