  • Jim, we are saddened to learn of Linda’s passing. We always looked forward to seeing both of you at the Class lunches. I’m sure the guys will miss her calling them out when they were rowdy. She was a kind lady and we will miss her. We pray your memories will give you comfort. Randy and Joyce Dudley
