Linda and I had been friend's since Junior High. Lost contact with one another due to her and I both moving out of the area. Reconnected about 10 years ago and I am so happy we did. Linda, Kathy and I had so many laughs together over the years and when I was going through a rough time when my husband got sick, she was there to listen. I miss this feisty beautiful intelligent woman. May she now have peace My condolences to her sister Nancy
