  1. Went to high school with Linda st Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, Ky. I remember her fondly and was friends with her on Facebook. I had been enjoying all the photos of her many trips. What happened, had she been ill or was her death sudden. So sorry to hear of her passing.

  2. Sending thoughts of deepest sympathy to Linda’s family. We worked together at the New Cumberland Library and had many similar interests.
