Elizabeth and family I am so sorry of your loss. I am praying for you and your family. Linda was such an inspiration. We grew very close when she was my prayer partner. I thank the Lord for the time we shared together in choir and church and on the phone and in prayer. She was such a compassionate person. She was always there no matter how long you needed her for. She will be missed here, but God took home a beautiful angel. May the Lord comfort you all. God bless
