Jeff and family: I am so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. What a lovely, kind, genuine person she was to work with at La Porte Hospital. I loved her sense of humor and the sound of her laughter. Linda's hair and nail were always perfectly done and she was always neat as a pin. May she rest in peace. With sympathy, -Valerie Young
