My condolences to Linda’s family. I got to know her the last few years and I saw her blossom as a person. May you finally have peace, Linda!

Darlene Pearsall and I will each miss Linda as if she was a sister. She liked coming to picnics we had on the front porch and to my apartment at least once for a Thanksgiving dinner. Paul and Darlene
