We met February 28, 1985. We hit it off right off the bat. Got a call from Linda, while working on my ship USS Brooke FF-1. Waited in the rain for almost an hour! About to go to the ship, then I'll be darn, her and friend Kathy show up! The rest is history. She was the best person I ever knew . Everyone has flaws, but her good trumped them all! I will always miss her. Rest in peace my wife and best friend, Linda.

She is survived by our daughter Erica Coakley, sister's Delores and Grace, and David her son.
