So many precious memories of this wonderful, sweet lady. Not only was she my Sunday School teacher, she was my friend. I smile when I think of the day we were talking about what we would look forward to when we get to heaven, Linda wanted to ride that white horse into the gates. Ride on my friend, smile on your face, no fear in your heart. Love you Charly and Neil. Marilyn Ashworth
