Our loss of a dear and faithful friend...

Our loss of a dear and faithful friend...

Monday, November 27, 2017

We are saddened at the loss of our friend, Linda Laney, this day, November 27, 2017.  Linda has been a faithful friend of Faith Christian Academy since the school's inception.  Her children, Jim, Jennifer and Jodi, were the first children enrolled in 1989.  She was a dedicated mom who was actively engaged in supporting the school in so many different areas from helping with fundraisers, class parties, supporting the teachers, athletic program (including coaching a girl's basketball team), and encouraging her children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  Linda then became the school's Office Manager/Bookkeeper in 1999.  She also was a nurse and would often help out with those skills as well.  She had a servant's heart and a love for God and people.  She faithfully prayed for others as well as the school.

Her faithfulness and dedication was an inspiration to all.  She was a co-laborer in the ministry of FCA, but above all else she was our friend.  She wrote incredible notes of encouragement and exhibited love, joy, peace, patience and kindness daily.  Her private character would not want this attention focused on her, but it is important that you know that this lady exhibited God's love everyday.

She lost her husband, Jim, only two years ago to cancer and now her aggressive cancer has taken her.  Her character and example cannot be replaced, but hopefully will be one to emulate.

We will miss her terribly here at FCA - she was a dedicated Christ follower, devoted wife, a loving and caring mom, dedicated co-laborer, and a faithful friend.
