Linda lived across the street from my family when we moved to Delphi from Kokomo, in June, 1954, so I've known her and her sister Connie for many years. We lost track of each other after graduation from high school, and only reconnected as friends in 2007. thanks to her sister Connie, who is also a dear friend to me.
How I loved this delightful lady, Linda. She was a wonderful friend. I feel blessed to have been able to spend some quality time with her in the last few months of her life.
We talked on the phone almost every day, and that helped to close the miles between Kingman, AZ and Central Ind.
I will never forget her delightful laughter. and I miss our daily phone chats.
I'm thankful she is no longer suffering as she was in this life, and want to send peace and love to all her family.
