I haven't seen Linda in almost fifty years, but she was one of the sweetest, prettiest women I've ever known. She did my hair the first time I ever had it frosted--what a time. She was so beautiful and so kind you couldn't help but love her. She will be fondly remembered by a lot of people.

I lived my childhood just down the street from Mrs Norton and was blessed with a dear friendship with Jay. Mrs Linda had a nice salon in the back of her home, and I remember her being busy with both her business and especially being a mother of young children. She cut my hair a few tines, but I mostly remember her as a sweet and kind Mom who seemed happy for me to be friends with Jay. She was always so warm and friendly, making me feel welcome in her home on Rose Street. I will always be grateful for so many childhood memories with her family and for her sweet generosity to me and my family.
My prayers go up for Jay and the rest of the family, and I hope you find encouragement in your memories of her smiling face and loving heart.
God bless
