Just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Ms. Huddleston and I had many enjoyable conversations while I was at RCC.She was funny and loved her family so much. She shared a lot of Myra history with me once she knew we moved here.
We are sorry for your loss and are sending our prayers and love to y’all.
My thoughts and prayers for the family. Our connection began with her children in my high school days. Memories of Linnie at the dress factory then come to mind. She worked hard to provide for her family and loved them dearly. Rest now Linnie your work is done.
Prayers for all your family. Linnie loved her family dearly. Rest now and May your family find peace in their memories.
Jerry and I want to express our condolences to Rickie and all of the family in the loss of your mother.
Demps and I wish to extend our sympathy to all family members. She had a life well lived and will be welcomed into heaven. If there is 42 there she will be a winner as she was here.
