Bennie, I am so very sorry to hear the sad news about Linda. I spoke with her a couple of times in the past few years when trying to find a caregiver for my mom. She was always so helpful.
I’ll never forget all the fun times we had as Jaycees and Jaycettes and the Miss Pontotoc pageants. Always loved sweet Melanie, too, as she babysat for us many, many years ago.
I will remember you and your family in my prayers. Hold to those sweet memories of Linda !! Love, Diane
