Jim-- Ellen and I were so sorry to hear of Linda's illness and passing. It seems so long ago that we were in school together at EC and OU; but, then again, it feels like it wasn't long ago at all. We are both sick(and contagious) so won't be able to attend services, but please know that you, Linda and you family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for loss. I worked at Franklin with Linda. Her classroom was next to mine when I started out there. She was always helpful and could help out when the day was rough. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Jim and family, we are very sorry for your loss. We so enjoyed meeting you and Linda in SC when you came down for the annual golfing event. While the guys were golfing, the girls lunched and shopped and got to know eachother. Linda was such a sweet, bubbly, fun person. I know she will be greatly missed by so many. Our thoughts are with you.
