    From our family to yours we send our deepest sympathies. I heard from my mom that Aunt Linda recently had nice holiday visits with many in her family so I’m sure you all will have good memories of her. We regret that we will not be able to be there for the memorial service but we also will remember her fondly.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Thru the years, I have gotten to know Larry and Vickie with FCS and FCCLA activities, Lonnie in the days at Austin Tracy and of course you Lynn as college roommates at WKU. I would see your mom on occasion at Immanuel Church when I was in town and she would always catch me up on the family activities. I know she will be missed. May God bless you all.

  10. Kathy and Lawrence Clark says:

    We are so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. We knew your parents from the earliest beginnings of IBC and truly enjoyed their friendship thru the years. We are sorry we will not be able to pay our respects in person but unfortunately we are out of town for services for Lawrence’s mother. Know your family is in our prayers.

    linda and I go back a long way. We were in the homemakers together when Lynn and Robin were babies. We were Room Mothers at Austin-Tracy. We hid Easter eggs, brought cookies for Valentines Day, gifts for Christmas, cake for Christmas, or any other reason we could find to visit . We stayed in touch through the years and remained friends. We wish you pleasant memories and God’s peace and comfort.
