  4. Linda was one of my favorite childhood friends. She was my prom date for my senior prom. She was always a laughable girl and great to be around and just kid with. I remember one time however, she did not take my kidding was so funny. I was behind her in the lunch line at high school and I was picking on her and pulling her pigtails. She spun around and yelled Goddamn you Porky (she called me porky because of the way my hair stuck out on the sides). She then threw a right hook and caught me in the eye. My shoulders hit the floor so quick, I didn't know what happened. My eye swoll up and turned black. She then went around the school and told everyone she was the one that gave me the black eye. I hope you can share this with the congregation and remember her on a happy note. My sincere condolence to the family during your bereavment.Jerry Cuvillier
