    A pleasure to be around Linda and Lloyd. Her quiet humor and quick wit was something I’ll never forget about her. Although our times spent together were short, Linda was so open I felt like I’d know her for many years. My heart felt sympathy to Lloyd and Linda’s other family members. I pray the many years of memories will help comfort you during this time. Godspeed to you
    Miss Linda. You will be missed but not forgotten. Hugs

    I was shocked when I read on Turner’s web site of the passing of my cousin Linda Owen Walker.
    My sympathy to Lloyd
    God Bless
