Linda was a neighbor but I mostly visited her while she was working.
Once I found out she was ill she never left my thoughts and prayers.
Now my prayers are for the family, it's a time of mourning. I pray for God's peace and comfort to be upon you all. I can personally attest to the quote" Tis better to have loved and lost than to have never loved". Blessings.
