I met Linda at a 5k walk I did with her daughter, Candi last May and I must say that I wished I had met her sooner. I had always seen her in church, but never really spoke with her other than hello. I had a great time that afternoon walking & talking with her. She was such a kind & funny woman. I know that she loved her family and she was dreaming of retiring. She will be missed by many, but we know she has eternal life, which is the greatest gift of all. Rest in Peace Mrs Linda Key:)
