I have so many happy memories of the fun we all had and the memories we made during your time living in Greenwood, MS. I will never forget the Christmas Linda and I determined to make Veal Oscar for an Advent Dinner. We had so much fun hunting Oxtail soup, fresh asparagus, etc. The wonderful time we spent talking and visiting (and dare I say) getting Doug to call children and pretend to be Santa Clause. What a great lady and wonderful family! You will be much missed by all your family and friends. Peter, I still miss you coming over and eating southern food! Love to all of you.

Dear Doug, Amy, Peter and family - We are beyond sorry for the loss of Linda. She was beautiful inside and out. She gave so much love to everyone. She was thoughtful, considerate, loyal and kind. We will always cherish our 47 year friendship. No distance could come between us. We just spoke two weeks ago,. We ended every conversation the same way, "love you" and my response was 'love you too" Fly with the angels Linda, until we meet again - Love Barbara and Gene Folgo xxxooo
