    I just heard the heartbreaking news of the best friend anyone could ever have. I am so sorry for all of her family and for myself because I let her slip out of my life and didnGÇÖt even know she was Ill. To many days and then years pass before you realize the passing of time. Please let your special friends know how much you love them. Linda was and always be in my heart and our memories be cherished. Nancy Balcome Nichols
