Linda was tireless when it came to teaching the children of Westford about God. It was a privilege to be in Children's Church n hear her teach God's word each Sunday. She and Ted loved each child n made it their priority to be there for them. Linda was loved by us all n will be missed. Until we meet again. I love you!!
