Linda was a friend and neighbor for many years. I got to meet most of her siblings,mom and her dad. We had many good times together while raising our children down the road from each other. Linda introduced me to my husband, Leon Lebarron. Linda knew Lee from Dunkirk/Fredonia as her T.V. service man for years. Lee and I have been together for 40 years since that introduction. Thank-you Linda. May you have a Blessed Time with our Lord. You will be missed. Bonnie,Lee and Gail (Lebarron) Behnke
