    Linda was a childhood friend of mine and we were in school together through MTSU. In fact, I still think of her as Linda Sue. We sat together at our 50th HS class reunion and unfortunately that is the last time I saw her. Linda was always a smart and sweet girl. As a mother, she was very proud of her sons. I know she was a rock for her family and I know you will miss her very much. I spend the winter I FL, so will not be able to attend her service. My prayers and thoughts will be with her family during this time of sadness.

    I am very saddened about hearing of Linda’s passing. Linda was my classmate in grammar school ( Training School ) in Murfreesboro and my classmate at Central High School. I always really liked Linda. She was very pretty and fun to be around. My prayers go out to Linda’s family at this difficult time.

    Limda Sue and I were childhood friends attending Training School and CHS together. We were majoretts together at CHS. She was a year ahead of me in school but we were very close and with each other lots. She was a lovely person and a great friend. Many fun times and many great memories are with me. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

    Linda Sue and I were classmates at CHS. I remember her as a very outgoing person, friendly,, and a very good dancer. She and her future husband were a dance couple on the WSM Five Oclock Hop. In later years I came to realize that i had known her family members most of my life. As she was they were all great folks.
