    Linda was someone that I did not know for a great length of time, but in that time she made an unforgettable impression upon me. She was very kind, and always willing to listen to whatever I had to say, and offered valuable advice, for in her years, she had gained some divine wisdom. She, however, carefully, and selectively, passed this out. It was not issued out carelessly. The impression and information that she left with me in the short time that I knew her, will always be with me. She cared…in an unusual way, and it was genuine. To all of her family, and, especially to her daughter, Eva, who is a dear friend, my love and prayers go out to you during this time. I am so thankful that God allowed me to spend some time with this unique and precious lady, who now is in the arms of Jesus. With Love, Judy Ingram.

    Jim – I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your great loss. You’ve been a great friend to me over the last few years we’ve known each other, and I want you to know that I’m here if you should ever need anything. You are definitely in my prayers. — Doug

    Jim, I am so sorry for the loss your family has suffered. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting your wife, I remember you talking of her several times and what a great lady she was. Your can never prepare one’s self for a blow like this even if you fear it may happen. Just take comfort in the fact that she is no longer suffering any pain and she is now “singing with the angels”. You are a good person Jim and I know you have lots of friends who will be there to support you and you can count me among the lucky ones who have had the pleasure to meet and know you. I hope you consider me a friend as I do you. Again I wish all the best for you and your family in this dark hour. If I can be of assistance in any way, just let me know. — Rod
