Linda was a very sweet lady I really enjoyed working with her at LCE in bryson city NC. She never said no to anything. Always very helpful. All of the people she supported at the Arlington house have passed on. But she will be greatly missed. Rest in paradise Linda. Much love to you and your family. Angie Jackson
