  1. Judy, so sorry to hear this. Linda was kind and quiet. I want to tell you that I was very sick at my Grandma Vallie’s house across from the grade school (grandpa Long’s second wife) and Linda was helping Grandpa Vallie (I have no idea why) anyway Linda nursed me back to well enough to go home in a couple of days. I remember that kindness Linda extended to me and I have a warm place in my heart for her. Cherish the memories!!!!


  2. Judy, I am so sorry to see this. My memories of Linda with church and youth group activities as well as classmates all through school. You have my deepest sympathies. God Bless and keep You and Linda’s family through this difficult time.

  3. Judy, I am sorry to see this. We were good friends through youth group and church (Loretta Smith, your Linda, my sister Linda and me). Prayers for you as you go through this hard event, especially at Christmas. God bless you! Cinda

  4. My deepest condolences Judy to you and the rest of the family and loved ones. May GOD bless and keep all of you during this moment of great sorrow.

    Linda and I were on the same bowling team years ago and traveled to Mt. Carmel nearly every Monday night during that time. She was really good; whereas, I was really bad. She didn’t care; we had fun! She was a friendly, smiling, and sweet friend. I didn’t know she had passed until now. So, sorry. I will keep you all in my prayers.
