    (( HUGGSS)) to the entire family. We have known Linda for a long time. As a kid, I thought it was great that she ALWAYS had some gum to share with us. When I got older I realized that she didn’t have it on hand to pass out, it was hers to enjoy but she shared with you. I think that she may have been the one to teach me how to snap it and blow bubbles. Roy and I send out our love to you during this sad time.
