Jerry and family, Linda was a ray of sunshine to me. She always seemed to sense when I was not having a good day and would always start joking and make my day turn around from gloomy to sunny. I will surely miss her...I only hope that she knew how very special she was,and what she meant to me. . I wish there was something I could say that would make her passing easier for you, but that is not possible. Hold on to your faith in God and he will see you through the pain, and fill your heart with sunlight and joy again as you cherish all your fond memories of her. God bless and rest in peace my friend, for some day soon I will see that bright smile of yours once more and hear your laughter. Till we meet again...Jane

Jesus said, Come to me all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust in me also. In my Father's house there are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. God Bless the Marko and Santos Family.

Dear Marko Family, I am so sorry for your loss. Linda was a lovely woman and my best friend. We clicked from the very beginning when she moved next door to me here in Oklahoma. I wish we had kept in touch more over the last few years, but life in general kept us both busy. I miss our Saturday garage sale trips, her funny stories, and her laugh. Jerry, Jennifer, Martina, and Maria, I love and miss you all so much. Me and my family's thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

Jerry, Jen, Martina and Maria, how saddened Gil and I are to learn of Linda's passing. Sincere and heartfelt condolences from our family to yours. There are no words we can offer to ease your pain, only good memories and times shared in our homes on Davis Street with our girls running up and down the street in bathing suits all summer long and Mrs. Marko always there to feed, nurture and luv all the kids on the block. Linda was vibrant, her personality was as big as her heart. She was faithful to her God, her family and her friends. God Bless you all as you help each other thru this very painful loss. We are thinking of you and send you graceful blessings. Gilbert & Margie Gamino

Linda - you are and always will be our beautiful, funny, feisty & loving sister-in-law with whom we shared so many wonderful times together. You were such a big, big part of our family & we cannot imagine you not being there waiting to greet everyone as you see them. You & Jerry are the most positive people we have ever known & you got us through our tough times with your love & positivity. You are in our hearts & will be in our family forever. Words cannot express how much you will be missed by us & everyone in your life. You have touched so many people. The world has lost such a beautiful person but Heaven has gained one of the best. We know you will be always be watching over all of us here on Earth until the Lord decides it's our turn to join you. We love you so, so very much & miss you already. It was an honor and a blessing to have you in our family - Jerry was so lucky to have you in his life & you two created 3 beautiful, perfect daughters who then created your beautiful grandchildren - you truly gave our family so much. You will be missed every single hour of every single day by everyone - but you will always be in our hearts & souls and never, ever forgotten. You are now with God in a beautiful place - be happy, be pain free - we will see you later our beautiful Linda.

What a list! A wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a aunt, a cousin, a daughter-in-law, a sister-in-law, a grandmother, and a friend. Linda, you are all of these. Now we can add Guardian Angel to this list. You have been such an inspiration to so many of us. I know words can't describe how I feel right now, but I do know that we will miss you so very much. Thankyou for taking care of Jerry all these years. And thankyou for giving us your 3 beautiful daughters and their children, in which you will live-on within each of them. You will live forever in our hearts and memories. Thankyou for your time with us here on earth, but it is now time for you to begin your new life along side our Lord. This in not good-bye, but a temporary separation. Until we meet again..... Love & miss you always, Tom & Lory
