My heart is saddened to know this precious jewel was taken from this earth so soon. I used to play with Tonya when we were kids, I still remember the one pony-tail Linda used to put in her hair because my mom used to do the same, neither of us liked it. This jewel gone but not forgotten. Linda, I am praying for you and your family.
