I had the privilege of meeting this lady once when I took her son, Gordon out to visit with her a few months back. What turned from an hour's to a few hours visit will be with me forever. She was so fun to visit with that I felt like we were family cuz she made me feel very welcomed. We laugh and talk for a while and I think I could have stayed longer had time permitted. I'm so sorry to Gordon and his family for their loss. May you all be blessed with peace and comfort that only the Lord can provide you with...RIP Ms. Linda.
