I was so sad to learn of Linda’s death. Thank for for the lovely obituary and for including the picture of a happier time. I lived on Center Street in Wellsville during high school and Linda and I walked to school together almost every morning. She was a kind, thoughtful person and I never heard her say a negative word about anyone. But, of course, you already know this. I’m so sorry for your loss.
