Linda was a cherished friend and cousin, taken from us far too soon.
She was always upbeat and good natured and was fun to have along on trips we shared, one being to Germany, France, England, and Scotland.
Gail & I offer our deep condolences to Dale and the family for their loss.
She may be gone from our house but not from our memories.

Linda taught me in the North Plant to work the new computer system. We talked over the years. A wonderful person with a great personality. God be with her family at this very distressful time.
