Gail and family, I just noticed my earlier message never posted. I'm saddened at your loss of Linda, and want each of you family members,friends, former co-workers, church family and neighbors to know that each is in my thoughts and prayers! I'd known her and Mackie since starting work with Gene Chewnings Shell Station the mid 60's, and always enjoyed talking with them and admired Mackie when we worked with Bonsal. Lord, rest her soul, and hear our prayers for our departed sister in Christs' family.
