Linda was like a second mom to me. I loved her dearly and especially remember the times when she and Shirney would cackle to their heart's delight about the silliest of things. Linda took care of my brother and I when we were young. Memories I will never forget. God's blessings to all of you as you mourn her loss. My heart is with each and every one of you.
Love, Tami
