To Larry and the entire Schultz and Jackson families. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of my fellow '59 classmate as well as grammar school and Calvary Baptist Church colleague. The sad recollection of her name brought back fond memories of her, you Larry, and your parents during our adolescent years. Take comfort in the many who Linda touched and remain to keep her memory alive. May she rest in Eternal peace.
