Jim, sons and all family. Only found out yesterday of Linda's passing. So sorry I did not know, I ( Ann ) would have been at the services to honor her.
She was one of the most friendly ladies I have know, always a smile for all. Gary was upstate and would not have been able to come home, but we both feel your sorrow. Blessings to all and may she rest in peace with the Lord.
