Ms. Linda was the best friend a person could ever hope to have and my mother, Joy Ernsberger, had the privilege of receiving that friendship for many years. I am sure she has a special place in heaven for being such a loving person! My prayers and thoughts go out to all the loved ones she left behind.

So sorry for your loss - but heaven has gained another rose for its' garden. Keeping you and family in prayer. May God continue to sustain you in the days to come - as only He can do.
