I only knew Linda for a short time this year as I've gotten to know one of her sons, Jimmy. And though I haven't known her long, I felt as if I was already a part of her family. She'd hug me, and even my parents who happened to be in the hospital the same day we were all there with Bobcat! I am truly grateful for the time that God allowed me to know Linda. I am going to miss her deeply until we meet again with Jesus.
