My thought and prayers are with you. Linda was as good friend in high school. I remember once in home ec. clrk6pass I pulled her chair back when she went to sit down. She forgave me but never let me forget and we remained friends. She will be missed.

DARIN, I'm saddened to hear of your mothers passing. She was always kind and generous to me. She will always be remembered as an awesome lady. Lots of fun too. Sympathy and prayers to your family. My mother, Carla, said she always enjoyed visiting with your Mom. Their visits would pick right up from the last time they saw each other.
