I have so many found memories of Linda not only at CMH but just seeing her out in the community, I just saw her and visited with her a few months ago and felt she was full of life. I am sure you have all watched her struggle over the last many years but she always had a smile whenever I saw her, just like her picture here. What wonderful memories you must have with Linda. God bless each of you.
