I didn’t know Linda very well, however, she and my mother, Laverne Powell, were very good friends. They attended and served at Bascom UMC together for many years. After my mother was unable to attend church due to health issues, Linda always kept in touch through phone calls as well as uplifting cards; she also mailed mom a church bulletin each week. I know, through mom, that Linda loved the Lord with all her heart. She fought a good fight, kept the faith, finished the race, and has now entered into the presence of the Lord to receive her Crown of Righteousness! My condolences and prayers go out to the family.
