    I remember Linda well we graduated together from Frederick high School in 1966. She was always sweet and kind to everyone that she came in contact with I am sure you will miss her greatly as she was one special person. I also remember when they had the antique store here in siren. But had lost track of her after they left the area. Please take care of each other and hang on tight to those lovely memories you hold in your heart my condolences to all of you Barb Mitchell Murphy
