So sorry to hear of Linastean’s passing. I remember her as a great hostess and she loved being involved with all things pertaining to her friends and family. We are cousins and share the same family ties. She definitely leaves a wonderful legacy. Love to you Jan, Lisa and all the family.

Lisa, condolences to you and your family. I loved your mom very much. She was a real sweetheart. She will be sorely missed. I would love to come to the service but Mack is very sick and in the hospital having a rough time. Love and prayers to everyone.

Aunt Linastean was almost a year younger than me, but she was much smarter! She was my earliest playmate and lived next door for most of our childhood. She was more like a sister to me and she was the last of my Mother’s generation. I left home as a teenager and only got to know her as an adult by occasional family and class of 1954 reunions. I knew her to be a faithful Christian mother and homemaker and I am pleased to have had her as part of my family. Bobby Barrow
