Our condolences and prayers go out to the Boswell family on the loss of Linda. She was like a sister to me in high school where we both were members of the first Tiger Band. She was our solo majorette and I attempted to play trumpet. The memories of Linda bring back the "good ole days" of growing up in Greensboro. This is a sad and personal loss. God bless Linda and the Boswell Family.

to Linda's family,
The last time I saw Linda was when Neal Dolvin died, I came by her house after the funeral, she was as beautiful as ever. My wife(Wilmarose) and I loved her like another daughter. I could not be at her funeral, my daughter in law was buried on the same day.
May she rest in peace and her dwelling place be in the paradise of God.
