Linda was a wonderful person. I remember her relationship with my grandmother who was her Avon lady for years. She was a faithful servant and we had our birthday in common.

Linda and I shared many talks at her kitchen table. I enjoyed visiting with her which always lead to staying longer than intended. I have been blessed to know her and thankful for her friendship. My condolences to Mitch and the family.
