My deepest sympathy to the family. Having grown up in Searcy, I knew the family well and knew Linda when I lived in Jonesboro.
Extremely wonderful person!!!
I am so sad to read this. I loved Ramona’s wit and kindness.
Babe was a part of my history, and When I ran into her recently we had a nice chat revisiting that history.Her dad and mine were friends.
