My sincere sympathies to Linda and family. I have fond memories of Mrs. Taupier being a great mom during the teenage years, a mom you could talk to. I was lucky to be able to speak with her again a couple of summers ago when she was visiting her grandson Fred's home. She hadn't changed at all, still smiling and friendly. I know she will be dearly missed.
