Although I have known Mrs. Linda for around 25 years, my best memories of her will always be the stories that my husband, (Clayton) and our niece and nephew ( Wyatt and Alyssa) have told. Six years ago, when Clayton and I started raising these babies, I got to see another side to her. She was a remarkable woman. Very kind, and full of love. I hope she knows how special she was to me; she never hesitated, and welcomed me into her family with open arms. I will miss you sweet Granny. I ❤ you!! - Jnit

Linda was always kind and friendly to all who knew her. Dickie said she used to sit on creek bank where he was fishing near their childhood homes on Hey 13 near Society Hill Praying for family during this time of sorrow. 🙏
