I have very fond memories of Linda from cos classes together at Penta and sitting together on the school bus. She was a sweet person who I always enjoyed being around. I remember her to have been an awesome person and terrific hair stylist. Very sadly time puts distance between friends and I lost contact with her. RIP sweet lady
