When I was in high school, Linda and I worked together at Buddies Grocery Store. The isle I worked on was right by the bakery where she worked. Her and one of the other ladies always called me over when the had fresh hot cookies. She was so fun to work with. I have not seen her in years. So sorry for your loss.
