    Karl, Karen, Lisa, and entire family: We are saddened to learn of Linda’s passing. Over the 35 years we spent as their neighbors, we shared many laughs at holiday parties or sitting in the yard or around the fire pit. We pray for all of you as you move through your final good byes. She will definitely be missed by many. Joanne & Paul Randall

    There’s so much to say about this wonderful woman. She was loving, kind, loyal and funny without even trying. She was the matriarch of our family. It goes without saying, that she was deeply loved and will be deeply missed.

    Many thanks for your post. I’d really like to write my opinion that the price of car insurance varies from one scheme to another, given that there are so many different facets which contribute to the overall cost. For example, the model and make of the auto will have a massive bearing on the price. A reliable older family car or truck will have a more affordable premium compared to a flashy sports vehicle.
