Grew up with Linda in Fairlawn. Her Dad owned Dan's Variety on Power Rd. Were there once a week for our penny candy. Always thought of Linda when in the old neighborhood, a great person we had many good times.

I worked with Linda at the SRO and would joke with her about her always wanting Lebanese pies from Sam's bakery. She is probably eating some as I write this.
Rest in peace Linda.
