Herbie & family: words can not express our feelings of love, sorrow and prayers lifted up for all of you at this very difficult time. Linda was such a very special person and all that knew her have been blessed. I remember growing up my mom telling us stories of your family and Carol. All of you were very special to her and she loved ya'll very much, as do we all. Some of my greatest childhood memories are of times spent on your and Uncle Frederick's farms while we visited Port Byron in the summer time. May God bless you and comfort you during this very difficult time. Ya'll are in our thoughts and prayers. Wish we lived closer and could be there for you. Love ya'll!!!
