Linda and I have known each other since 2nd grade. We were college roommates at Kent State. We were in each other’s weddings. We shared happy times and saw each other through the rough times too. She was the type of friend that even if you didn’t see each other for a length of time, the minute we gave each other a hug, it was like we had never been apart. I will miss our talks and messages, but will always have the wonderful memories we shared.

Rest In Peace my sweet friend. Love ya
