Linda was a terrific friend. We loved traveling to Battle Creek to K Mart. And Claras. And Cracker Barrel. Or Uncle Ernies or Poor Richards or BobEvens. Sounds like we ate a lot but she ate like a bird. Our waitresses were always in stitches from her puns and jokes. They were always prayed for too. We often just sat and visited and solved world problems. Often wed do a Bible Study and her insight into Gods Word was phenomenal. I always learned so much from her. Despite all her pain she always was a trooper and apologized if she complained which she hardly ever did. She cared so much for her family and friends and an amazing prayer warrior. I will miss out chats, and texts and trips to Shippsie and south Haven and oh the joy of the Guy Penrod concert. She almost fell out of her chair when he came close! I am so honored she was part of my life and will forever be grateful our paths joined for as long as they did. I imagine the applause of heaven when she arrived was deafening ! No more sorrow no more pain no more tears, safe in the arms of her Savior Jesus . I love you Linda and will miss you so much.
