    So sorry to hear of Linda’s passing, was not expecting to hear of this for a long time. I worked side by side Linda at Mallory’s. Never a dull moment, she laughed all the time. She will be greatly missed. I cannot be in attendance for her services, as I live in Tennessee. Again,my condolences to the girls.

    “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.” John 14:1 – 4

    Linda was mother to three beautiful daughters and (long-awaited) son. She was so proud of all of you and your families. I enjoyed visiting with her. We could always find something to talk about; there was always a neat story and laughter. Enjoy your family as you reminisce. She was a great lady and I know a great mom.

    Gail and family,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers, in the passing of your Mother and beloved family member. It has been a long time since high school, I remember those good times and good people (friends). Just sending you encouragement in a dark time. Lost my Dad 3 years ago, it’s hard. The good Lord will help you through this, he helps us through our darkest hours. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” Take care and know that your family is being lifted up in prayer. Sincerely, Connie Brown
