What a gift Linda was to all her family and friends! Although i have not seen my Opelousas Girl Scout friend in years, I so enjoyed catching up with updates about her sons and grandchildren online. My heart hurts for all of you but especially you, Don, on the loss of your “little Bride”. She loved that Title.
