Linda was a beautiful, talented, warm, and friendly classmate of mine at O-M. She was a friend to everyone, always willing to help and to encourage others. Aware of her health struggles, I have prayed for her over the years. I am glad she can now rest in the care of God's hands for eternity. Condolences to her family. Heaven gained a beautiful soul.
