I am so sorry to hear about Lindas passing. We were great friends at Monroe High School. I wish I would have known she lived in Claiborne County. I lived there from 83 till 2013, until we moved to North Carolina. She was always fun to be around. This world has lost a great lady, but heaven gained a beautiful.angel. Godspeed Linda. You, and Pat are having a great time.
