I had the pleasure of introducing Linda to her Mary Kay Career many years ago. Her beautiful spirit and faith filled life were a testimony for everyone who knew her. I was blessed to have gotten to spend time with her.

Linda was a big influence in my life, she was my Sunday school teacher and was always upbeat and positive she was a fine example of what a Christian should be. I will miss her greatly.
