We were privileged to meet Linda when she attended Mount Hope Youth Basketball games to watch Abram and Aaden play. I remember her as a wonderful grandmother who loved her grandchildren. She and I chatted quite a bit that day and I found her to be warm and friendly although we had never met before. I can believe that she was loved by all who knew her. Our sincere sympathy to all of her family, Jack & Lavada, Abram and Aaden. Our hearts carry you with love and prayer.
