Our thoughts and prayers for the family.
Bill and Family,
Wayne and I are so sorry for the loss of our dear Mrs Rocha. It was hard for me to call her Linda. I have fond memories of the fun I had volunteering with her at CVCA for many years. And who can forget the many trips we took to Chicago for Moody Founders Week.
Her faith was always front and center which she talked about often. Her larger than life personality will be missed.
Prayers for the Family during this time of grief.
Ida & Wayne Walker

Many precious memories of Linda “Mrs Rocha” the wonderful lady and friend i entrusted my kids with. Linda always got them to school safely and I knew she always would. Condolences to all family. I know the kids loved her. I remember a quote the kids passed on to me one day. Mrs Rocha must have been dressed up for an occasion after driving. The kids were impressed at how pretty Linda looked. She responded from my memory of what the kids told me,”even an old barn looks good with some new paint”. So glad my kids got to have those years with her.
A beautiful lady inside and out an inspration.
Many condolences over this great loss. May God’s grace comfort peace be with you all.
