Linda arrived in Howell, Michigan in the summer of 1973 with five Russian Wolfhounds, her then-husband, $5 of remaining travel funds, and no intention of opening a pet cremations business. She and her husband started working for Bright Spot Kennels, then went on to purchase the property in the future. After years of owning and operating the kennels, Linda went on to install two crematories within two years. She briefly stepped away from the business in 2000 but returned to take over the business in 2008. She’s been with the company since, sharing her passion for animals and helping loved ones cope with loss.
