Sharon Thornton-Hall To the family of our dear Linda, thank you for sharing her with the Tabernacle of God Holiness Church for over 30 years. She touched many lives, young and seasoned, and made an indelible impression on all with whom she came in contact. Her commitment to God’s service was exemplary. She will be sorely missed. May our Lord grant you peace as only He can during this time; and, may you find comfort in knowing that one of the Chief Musicians has taken rest from her labor and her deeds will follow her.

Louise Wardrick-Alston My cousin, my friend. I thank God for the years that we spent together. Going to church, Wednesday night prayer meetings, Youth conventions, Women's convention, etc. I thank God God for how you were always the same. Nora, Bev, in the matchless name of Jesus, you know that to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.
