It´s with my deepest sympathy that I write this to the family of miss Linda Ollie. For several years she worked with my mom,Priscilla, at Krispy Chic in East Savannah. They were the best of friends. Sadly, she passes away in February 2018. Ms. Linda, was one of the sweetest and most caring and concerned managers. May you all be forever encouraged during this time of your lost. Trust me, God will strengthen you at every time if need.
