I was so sad to hear of Linda’s passing. I worked with her at Martin Processing and the other companies we became for over 20 years. David worked in the Dyehouse, while Linda blazed trails by managing the vitally important slitting department. Linda had a great sense of humor, and was very accommodating to her fellow employees. She will be missed. My condolences to the family.

We are so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I'll always remember working with her, it was then when she would often mention how she loved you and Deana. She was over joyed when Hunter came, it was quite comical to watch both Linda and David in battle to see who could love Hunter the most. Just when they thought Pepper and Peanut was going to be their only babies.
Linda really enjoyed telling us all about your endeavors, your job success, etc. which I was always happy to hear. Every now and then she would show off computer tricks I'm sure you had a hand in showing her.
I said all this to say that I'll really miss her and our conversations about our crazy work experiences, gardening, & grandchildren as we passed the time at work. Linda was a great friend, I remember her comforting words when my own Mother passed, she touched many lives with her supportive and caring ways.
You and your entire family are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. May God Continue to Comfort you all in His Loving Arms.
Prayers Always, Ricky & Stephanie Neamo

Grant, I was sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. You and all your Mom's Family and Friends are in my thoughts and prayers during your time of loss. I had worked for your Mom a number of years when I came from the Martin Processing Rocky Mount Division to the Fieldale Division. I have fond memories of working around her and your Dad for many years before and after that at Martin Processing.
