    Roy, RD, Theresa, we were very saddened to hear the passing of your mom, Linda. She was such a loving and caring person. She sure loved my kids…especially Summer. They loved her too. We all thought the world of her too.. no one can take her place ever. She will be missed a lot. Heaven gained the sweetest Angel. She will forever be in our hearts and always on our minds. We love you Linda. May God give her husband, kids and grandkids comfort during this difficult time. God bless you all. Praying for everyone.🙏🏻❤️

    Linda and I were friends in elementary school and just re-connected a few months ago thru Facebook. I am so sorry to hear of her passing but feel fortunate to have re-connected with her. All of her family and friends are in my prayers.
