I haven’t seen Linda in almost 50 years, but she was one of the few people I’ve ever met who could light up a room with her smile.

I am sorry for the loss of her.

Regards to David and Tara.

Linda was such a sweet sweet girl and friend. I loved her laugh and her beautiful smile and voice. She was always so nice to everyone. We were good friends in high school and that friendship carried its way to college. We were roommates our freshman year at La Tech in Ruston, LA. We kept in contact a bit through life. Now I wish we had stayed close to one another more often. Tara and David, I pray that peace fills your hearts as you try to grasp what has happened. I share your grief. I'm still in shock over this. Eddy and I are praying for you two and that God delivers y'all comfort. Again, I'm so very sorry for your (our) loss. Heaven has definitely received an angel. God Bless You!

What I remember about Linda so much is her sweet smile and her friendly manner. She always had something nice to say and although I haven't seen her since high school, I have a feeling she never changed. This was just her way. My prayers and thoughts are with you all who loved her and will miss her, but I know she will never be forgotten......Anne Peterson.....BHS '72
