Linda I miss you! Linda was one of my dearest friends. Although we hadn't seen each other in years, when we spoke it was like a day hadn't passed. Linda went through a lot in her life, but with her strong faith in our Lord she made it through all of it! You went out fighting Linda, and I can't wait until we meet again. You are in the arms of our Lord.

Thinking of the last time I saw Linda when she visited 2018. We had an incredibly wonderful time together. Moments I'll cherish forever. Wishing God's peace to all who loved her.
