Linda, I'm sorry to see you go, and I know you fought because you wanted more time with all of us--especially Tommy, Tom, and your mom. We had some important conversations, but many of those memories have gone with you. There was still so much to be said. I will keep your words in my heart and honor your memory as best I can. Thank you for your kind spirit. I know you did a lot of good in this world.
Nikkole Todorovich left a message on June 4, 2020:
The choice was made. It shouldn't have been done. God picked for you to be the one. Together we join but in a different way. You were special, and they made that clear as day. For, whatever reason, things have to be harder than they should because if we could hold, hug, cry together, we would. They say you are only dealt with what you have strength for. This isn't true, because we need you much more. In the end, the choice has been made. As we mourn you, put you to rest, and say goodbye to your grave. We know that up above you will watch. The positives, the strength, and all that you knew we were capable of. We will never know why you were taken from us. A lot of blame, guilt, and feelings are a must. A lot of shame, thoughts, and wonder will come... The emotions are given for reason for some. In the end, there was a reason that you were chosen to go. No one knows why. No one wants it to be true. No one can say so. Today, we mourn the soul who was bright. As you continue to get closer to that light. You will be embraced with welcomed hands. As you were always an angel that stood where your heart stands. As you look down on them, give them strength. Every day might not be easy, they will go the length. Each day they will teach each other something new. Because of that, they can thank you. Although you are no longer here to help everyone you touched. The people you've reached will forever remember so much. Today, we lay you to rest. Saying goodbye is just a test. For you had a purpose in your heart. To bring everyone together, and figure out the rest. You knew it would be a start. To make promises come true, today we have to mourn you. Watch over them as we know you will, let them know you are there still. We love you in all our own ways. And still, it's not fair that it has come to today. Your smile, so bright and you... together again, in the clouds and up in the blue. RIP Linda Buczek Please, find ways to provide strength for everyone today. As you had more than enough to share... always so generous, you'll show us the ways to care.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

We are so surprised and wish this weren't true. Linda was ALWAYS smiling when I saw her at Irving Elementary. Her warmth and friendliness was genuine, and the children were blessed for it. She is a person to be proud of, and to be remembered. Our thoughts and prayers are for you and your family. Sincerely, Karen Hauer

So many fond memories. Linda's picture tribute touched so many friends, family & memories. Let's not forget the CB radio. Riding around in our cars talking with friends. Using our handles. If memory doesn't mistaken me, I believe this is how Tom & Linda met each other. You will be forever missed. Much love to you and your family. Leah xo❤

Linda was so welcoming to me when I was a student teacher at Irving. I greatly enjoyed my daily talks with her and Sue. She had an amazing way about her and her love for her job and the kids at Irving was very apparent. My deepest condolences during this most difficult time. ~Kelsey

Sharing in your sadness as we remember Linda. Even though we didn't talk much she was my sister in law. She was sweet, kind, and true to herself. Linda will be missed by many, she was definitely to young at 46. Just wanted to send our condolences from Florida. Our family is truly sorry to hear the news and just letting you know that we are sending comforting hugs and prayers for healing. Love you guys, Michele, Clint, Ilyssa & Logan Harrison

Sue Baldwin left a message on May 30, 2020:
No one ever had a bigger, kinder heart than Linda. She knew every student at Irving and loved them all! She knew those who were picky eaters, those who wanted to eat everything in sight and everyone in between. I have no idea how we can replace the compassion, the understanding, the loving patience and the selfless giving that we had with Linda. She faced so many health challenges, but they never stopped her from giving 100% and always loving the students, the staff at Irving and of course her husband, son and her mom Sue. Linda is irreplaceable and will be loved and remembered forever!
Janie Twinem left a message on May 30, 2020:
Linda will be sorely missed at Irving! She was so kind, caring loveable to all staff and all students! Sue you were a big part of our Irving Elementary family too! Linda's smile was contagious, our lunch room will never look the same. Linda would even decorate the lunch room , bring joy to all! Linda although our hearts are shattered, you will never be forgotten, RIP dear sweet Linda!!! ❤Janie Twinem

I enjoyed talking to Linda every lunch duty I had. I always admired how patient and attentive she was with every student. Linda will be very missed and I know many of my 5th grade students are heartbroken. My sympathies to all of Linda's friends and family.
Gail Citowitz Placzek left a message on May 28, 2020:
My deepest sympathy to Tom, Tommy, Sue and the girls. Linda was a wonderfully amazing person and such a gift to Irving. I don't know what we will do without her, and I cannot imagine walking down the main hall and not seeing her and Sue together. Her love of the students was a blessing to Irving, and she touched so many lives during her lifetime. I will always miss her!

I haven't worked at Irving very long but walked by the lunchroom often with my little friends from Early Childhood. Linda and Sue always had a smile and a wave to my friends and could coax smiles out of the most shy. My condolences to Sue, Tom and Tommy and all who will miss her. She had a genuine warmth.
Christina Martello left a message on May 28, 2020:

Susan Harvey left a message on May 28, 2020:
Linda was an amazing person. She always has a smile to share. She is missed dearly. My heart and prayers goes out to you all.
Nikki McLaurin left a message on May 27, 2020:
I'm so very sorry...Linda was such an angel here that I guess God wanted her back. My heart is breaking for the pain everyone is feeling. She may be at peace now, but she left a void that no one could ever fill. The best any of us can do is to live life to the fullest in honor of her fun-loving spirit. Bowling will never be the same without her there for mutual moral support & to joke with. I know she'll get her 300 up there, though! Go Linda! I'll miss you!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I had only known Linda for 4 years, since I began working at Irving, but she is one of the kindest people I have ever known. So many students and staff members could count on Linda to brighten their day. She always had a smile and a hug whenever needed. She will be deeply missed. Sending my sincerest condolences to her family and friends.
