Denise and Sabrina you both in my heart and prayers. Linda was an awesome soul. I loved going to Personal Touch. Linda would always greet me with that wonderful smile and contagious laugh. I would spend the next hour in heaven and didn't dare leave without my next appointment scheduled. Linda was a beauty inside and out. She will be very missed.
