    So sorry to hear about the loss of Ms. Linda Findley. She was a very sweet, compassionate, lady with a very big heart. We had the pleasure of Linda working with us several years ago. She was a very dedicated person to our patience and her jobs.
    Praying that God be with the family and comfort all. Rest In Peace Linda. We love you.
