“Nana” was loved by so many and will be missed greatly.
Linda will be missed and I have beautiful and some funny memories with her. We would not talk for years and when we did it was like we talked yesterday. We were friends from kindergarten through high school and at church then we got busy with family but then reconnected about 20 years ago. One thing we knew and often expressed to each other is how fortunate we were to grow up with our wonderful parents.
God bless you and give you comfort Walt, Starlett, Tish and your families.
There are no words. Darrell and I loved Linda like a mom. She was always so thoughtful and loving. Our hearts go out to Walt and the rest of the family. The assurance that we will see her again doesn’t ease the pain, but it does make it bearable.
Sorry to hear about Linda’s parting. We went to Jr. High and high school together. My husband is David an d he was friends with her brother Ronnie and we both lived close in east end. LINDA KAY HARRIS OBRIEN
