  1. Linda,

    You and your family have been a dear friend to me and my family for as long as I can remember. The Mangold family also fills in a big a part of my childhood memories. Then, one day, you and Roland became husband and wife. I cannot remember a time when you and then the two of you were not in my life in some way! Roland was a wonderful loving man. He will surely be missed. Together you two were so adorable and sweet. The two of you have undoubtedly touched countless lives with your kindness. I was saddened to hear of Roland’s passing. However, I know through faith in Jesus Christ, you will both be together in eternity. I am praying for you, your beautiful girls and their families as well as any extended family as you navigate the waters of grief together. Sending hugs and prayers to you all. Lovingly,

  2. Linda, I am so sorry to read of the loss of your husband. Praying for peace and understanding for your family. May God wrap his loving arms around you all!

    Your old friend and classmate,

    Nancy (Handy) Stears

  6. Im so sorry for your loss ive known Roland my.whole life and linda you all were like family to me even as we got older we didnt see much of each other like we did as kids but you were always in my heart im heartbroken for you all but i know he is smiling down on you all pain free waiting till you meet again i love you all and my prayers will be too

  7. Daddy,
    I know we have had our ups and downs, I am a lot like you! When we butted heads back when I was 16 and left home my plan was never to move back in! But God had other plans. And with that plan,I had to go out to learn how to take care of myself and things so when the time was right I would be there for you. Little did I know it would be moving back in to your house to help you go from life to death. I was not ready to lose you but I think God needed someone to help catch fish. I know that you are in a better place and God wanted me here to help you and momma and now just momma don’t worry! She is in good hands I will always love you and carry you in my heart until we meet again I love you

    • It has been a long time since we were neighbors on Constantine St., but I still have so many happy memories of you, Linda and the girls. The girls were so little then. You were always there to help or share a laugh. Nancy (Hanchon) Harmon-Labadie.
