    I was so sorry to learn of Linda’s passing. I met her at East Wake Senior Center and soon learned she was a lovely, kind and compassionate friend. In this past year, we shared quite a few prayer concerns and often spoke of the love and peace provided by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ .It was an honor to call her my friend ! I shall remember your family in my prayers . God bless you all !!
