    I used to be your bus driver up Acre. I wanted to tell you how sorry about your mom. When you lose your mom you lose your best friend. Trust in God, He can heal the pain and hurt. God bless. I still love all of my family from the school bus.

    We, Lynda Sue, Betty Sue, Ann and me have been together since 1 st grade. Our lives carried some of us half way around the world but we eventually made it back to eastern NC and we picked up our friendship as if we had never been apart. Things happen but we knew the 4 of us could call each other any time day or night. I didn’t get chance to visit with Lynda in her last days because of medical issues with my husband but I feel in my heart she knew I would come if I could. I have always loved her like a sister and even though I won’t be with her tomorrow she knows I’m with her in spirit! I love you now and forever my sister!

    I met Linda back in April when we were both in Reb together. I did not know Linda at that time, but later I saw her name on the board. So I ask someone if we could meet, because I could see that she was from Hwy 32, in Plymouth, so the next day one of the girls that was working with her, brought her to my room. I then told her who I was and that I graduated with her brother Gray. Then we saw each other a lot. I wondered how she was. Linda was a very sweet lady, and I am so glad that we met. May she rest in peace.
