I was nodding my head when I read about her vast knowledge on various topics. That quality seems to be shared amongst her siblings. I will remember how good of a conversationalist she always was each time I saw her. She also had a great ability to make a person feel comfortable through lightheartedness and laughter. Her presence will surely be missed at family gatherings.

    Eternal Love,
    Linda & Les Huntley

Just two months ago we sat at the salon and talked and laughed for two hours. Not only were you a faithful client but you were a faithful friend. I saw you five days before GOD called you home and as usually you said to me I’ll see you in two weeks kiddo.
