It is with sadness that I read of Linda’s death. She was a classmate at Whitehall, our having gone to school together since children in the first grade. We were born in the same hospital! I also had the privilege of seeing her at our 55th Class Reunion. I am thankful for the memories and pray God’s loving care for Linda’s family.
