I was a friend of Linda's in high school and remember her as a kind and sweet person. I remember her playing flute in the band. She liked a boy who also played flute in the band and we often talked about the boys we had crushes on. I also remember that she was in the cosmetology class when I was taking a drafting class so we were often in the same building. She wrote some very sweet comments in my yearbooks over the years. I do wish I had stayed in touch with Linda over the years. She was a very sweet person.
