Our sympathy to the family. Linda and Les were members at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Armour when we joined the church. Linda took care of my children one day so I could go to the LWML South Dakota District Convention in Pierre. She was a very kind and considerate lady.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Remember her from Corsica and she was a really nice lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

What a lovely lady. I got to know her at the James Valley Comm. Center at the dances. Had lots of good visits together. She was a special lady.
