I first met Linda and her sister Pat back in the 1970’s through Gerald Bingley. Oh the great times we had at the Back Forty, especially for the Ohio State/Michigan football games. Oh how the bar would be decorated half OSU the other Michigan. Linda and Pat were true “blue” to their team!!
Linda was so sweet and I loved her and Clancy!!
I know that Pat, Linda and Clancy are now in Heaven having a ball and enjoying a beer!!
May your many cherished memories be of comfort to her friends and family now, and in the days ahead.
