The presentation of classmates who are on the next journey of eternity was so poignant. When asked about special little things about them, I thought of Linda Linn who was one of my BFF's at Montgomery Elementary. Her mom was the school secretary and I spent a lot of time at their house on overnights. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I remember her family called her "Pickles". (That may have had something to do with her freckles. LOL ) Rest in peace, Linda.
I also remember Linda and her mom from Montgomery school. Linda always seemed so happly and you could always get her to start giggling by doing something goofy; and once she started giggling she couldn't stop!
In Mr. Coffman's algebra II class Dave Kohler and I would stare at her and make faces until she started giggling - that would always be good for a 5 to 10 minute disruption of class. She was always so happy that when you were around her you couldn't help but feel good too. She is certainly missed by those who knew her.
Oh Linda Linn..I don't remember where or how we met but I do remember staying at her place and in the country and went home and begged my dad to quit his job and be a farmer. I also remember going to the Ohio State Fair with she and her family. I am thinking her older sister and brother went also. Her brother still lives in the famlly home out in the country.
I later met up with Linda when she was a nurse but sadly didn't spend much time with her. So sad to lose so many of our classmates so young.
