Linda Kress, 59, passed away in 2009 after a courageous battle with cancer. Linda lived a life full of compassion and love. Linda exhibited the core character traits that we all hope to achieve. Linda was quick to give you a smile, a friendly hello and always willing to help others. Linda spent her live involved in helping children as a school secretary, working with 4-H children and always giving words of encouragement. Even as Linda suffered with her own battle with cancer, she never complained, she looked at it as “How do I help others.”Linda lived by the poem “Life is Too Short to Wake Up with Regrets” you would find this on her desk at work in her home and she used it as her road map to life.Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don’t.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.

Along with helping others Linda loved the outdoors, riding horses in the mountains of Montana and believed in programs like Big Hearts under the Big Sky. Linda’s family felt that the BHUBS Memorial is a perfect example of how Linda lived her life helping others.
