I am saddened by your loss of Linda as she was a dear friend at THS. It is so hard to lose good friends, but I am thankful for the blessings I have for knowing her. Your pictures brought back such fond memories. The coke ad was taken in my home. Precious picture of Linda. On the left are Petey Powell & Myrna Smith. I am sitting in front. Blessings to you all.

Nancy, I'm sorry to hear of your sister's passing; however, I recall the peace
I also had when I saw my father, at the funeral home dressed in this suit and time, laying peacefully and at rest. He had a stroke and was ill for 5 years and it was a long "Good-Bye" I cherish my time and years with my father and he continues to be with me. I pray that you and your family will heal from your loss of a loved one and praise God for her eternal life.

In Sympathy and Love, Ruth Ann Ernst

Nancy, my heartfelt sympathy. I know you will miss her, but Linda is at peace now. The obituary mentioned Linda's laugh. I smiled, because I can almost hear it! And I loved all the pictures----especially the three little sisters and those of Lyndell and Charlie.
God bless you, Margie Rhoads
