Linda was happy to know that she had a place reserved in heaven because she accepted Jesus as her personal Lord and Saviour. How happy she is now! Our sympathies to her family

Mrs. Kingston was an amazing woman I met when i was in high school. I was going through a lot (health wise) at that time and she was always there. We spent lots of afternoons together just talking (and of course time was also spent with her dog bubbles). We drifted apart when she moved away from sunbury but every year I got a Christmas card which ment the world to be. I was so glad to have her back in town and even happier to have her become such good friends with my grandma. Mrs. Kingston will forever be in my heart ♡
