My sympathy and prayers go out to Linda's family. I have known Linda for a very long time as we attended elementary and high school in Wayland. My sister, Margene Davison Erlenbush, also attended school with her and also worked at WalMart in WA with her. She always had a smile and was a sweet, funny, caring character. I know you will miss her so much. May God bless you, her family.

I was sorry to hear of Linda's passing. I knew Linda through Catholic Daughters and would run into her occasionally at church. She always had a smile.
