  5. Johnny, Kelly and family….I’ve known Linda since we were in school and rode the bus together. Eventually as she and many of your family members came to work for us, and some of you still do, we’ve come to know your whole family well. Johnny, you’ve been such a devoted and supportive husband, partner and caretaker. Kelly, your mom was lucky to have such a caring and loving daughter. And you all were very blessed to have her in your lives….she was truly a special lady. ❤️
