    I am so very sorry that I missed Linda’s obit as I was searching the Ports Times for my cousins obit.
    Linda & I were very good friends in our Junior & Senior yeas at PHS, class of 1960!! I was fortunate enough to know her lovely & kind parents also. Linda & I just had so much fun together during those school years. She & some other close girlfriends sneaked into the church where I was married as we only had immediate family in attendance. She & I lost touch shortly after my marriage but was so excited for her when she & Keith were married. I loved Linda & her sweet disposition & her “smiling eyes”, she was a beautiful friend always & as a matter of fact next month I am visiting in Marysville & had plans to go visit Linda. I regret that won’t happen now. I know Linda gained her Angel wings in Heaven & is so very happy to be w/ Keith & son , Mike once again!!! I’m so very sorry for her remaining family to have lost a beautiful Mom,& Grndma & my heart goes out to them💞💗💞
