Linda and I were cousins (our mothers were sisters). We didn’t visit often enough, but I recall fondly sharing a meal with her and Sue a few years ago at a little restaurant in Tioga. God’s blessings on her family.

Linda was such a lovely person with a wonderful sense of humor. I wish we could have seen her more often. God bless and comfort Donald and Douglas and all of our other cousins in Texas.
