    Dear Mr. Willie, Corey and Family,

    I have had you all in my prayers for quite some time.
    I never got to meet you, Mr. Willie, but I know we spoke over the phone a few days before Linda passed away, when you called to give us an update on how she was doing. I told my coworkers how you and I spoke for about 10-15 minutes and how nice you were.
    I had the brief pleasure of working w/Linda at HPD. I have not been here a year yet.
    She was always very kind and helpful to me and my heart breaks over your loss.
    She will be missed and you all will stay in my prayers!

    May the Lord turn His face towards you and give you peace.

    I had the privilege of working with Ms. Linda for a while at the police department. Some people make a lasting impression on you and she was one of them. Sometimes we do not realize the impact we have on someone when humor or kindness is truly needed. Thank you Ms. Linda for being so kind to me. Prayers to your family.
