Linda is one of the nicest hard working person I ever met. I had the pleasure of knowing Linda nearly 3 decades with GNC. Many time we would call each other to compare how how hard it was to keep our inventory straight and how thing would fall apart if we didn't care. We kept things together because we both did care and thought of GNC as our family. I will miss our talks Linda. Be with God and God please help her Family remember only fun memories of the great mom, daughter, friend she was.
