My prayers and thoughts are with you in your hour of sorrow. Linda was a mentor to me when I worked for her at Fort Monroe. She was tough but fair, and I learned a lot from her. She will be sorely missed.

Many years have past since I last saw Linda. Our jobs coincided as she was a member of the editors staff in the AG Division. I was assigned to the AG Postal Staff and our correspondence had to be edited before being finalized for mailing. We were good friends and shared many happy moments. God bless you my dear friend. You will always be in my mind. My thoughts and prayers go to her family.

I am so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. I knew her from
the Ft. Monroe Credit Union. It was a pleasure to see her
come in and talk to me. She was a fine person. I look forward
to her visits.
