I am filled with sorrow to hear of Linda's passing. She was a high school classmate of mine and worked at Eddies' Restaurant when I did many years ago. She was such a hard worker. I remember those hot summer days when she was on dishwasher duty at the restaurant. The commercial dishwasher let out a lot of steam and hot moisture which made it muggy in her work area. She never complained about the temperature and seemed to have a smile for anyone that walked by on the way in or out of the kitchen.

I lost track of Linda once I graduated from college and moved out of the area. I hope she did not suffer. Her soul was good. I pray she is in eternal rest and peace.

I'm sad to hear of Linda's passing. I have fond memories of her when she helped at the Camden Methodist Church Sunday school and nursery. She was always very friendly and good with the children. My sincerest condolences to her family.

It was an honor to know Linda. We met her when she attended Delta United Methodist Church. She was truly a very special lady. I remember her unwavering commitment to ringing the bell for the Salvation Army at TOPS. She was a treasure.
