May Linda's family receive the comfort that only God can give as they go through the upcoming months. I was a member of the HHS Class of 1969. We didn't have a lot of interaction but I remember Linda as being a quiet, pleasant person.

Linda was my next-door neighbor and walk-home friend during our days at Harrisonburg High. Although my family left Harrisonburg before graduating from high school, I held onto fond memories of the city and my friends. I will always remember her as a quiet, thoughtful person who was an avid reader. I am sadden to hear of her passing and hope the family will lift their eye to the hills during this time. My deepest condolence to you all.
