As a teenager, I visited many times with Linda at her home. Her mother always made no bake oatmeal cookies which I still use the recipe today. This was a very special time for me as I lost my mother when I was seven. Linda and her family were always special to me. When we had chats through the years, her heart was with her children and her mother. My prayers are with you all.

Sorry to hear about Linda. May she rest in peace. She was a great softball player, that I remember.
