Ms. Linda was such a blessing to me. She was my director when I worked at St Francis. She is one of the reasons I made it through school. She stood behind me and worked with my school schedule for over 3 years if it wasn't for her patience with me I would have never made it. She will be missed greatly. Love Tammy.
