    Larry, my sincere and heartfelt condolences are sent to you and the entire family. Although I was not a part of Linda’s life but only no a few occasions she was loved and admired by me. I remember her fondly as being one of the kindest women I have ever had the privilege of knowing. I remember her as being loving, kind and generous. But most of all I remember her beauty…insid and outside. She always had that beautiful welcoming smile on her face and made me feel at home the few times that I was able to visit your home. I will hold you and the family in my heart and prayers. May you find comfort in knowing that she rests in Gods arms.
