    Linda was my bus driver for a lot of years and she came into the Dollar General and she gave me a tip. She will be missed. Her and Charlie were good Christians.

    Mrs. White was always so kind to me. She was my school bus driver as a child. She was alway fair but stern. Which we as kids needed. During Covid lockdown 2020, her and I exchanged conversations. I grew up as her neighbor right down Woodville Road. During Covid, I will never forget that she used to sit in the front of her home, facing west and watching the happenings of Tieman Tire. I would take her food and things I thought she might want or deserve. That December she gave me her car. I have loved and cherished it. Such Kindness was Mrs. White. May you Rest Well in the hands of God. You touched me beyond measure, and I will never forget your kindness, and your spirit. May your children and grandchildren, be at peace with your passing. You moved on to a much higher place. One day we all will get to see you again. So much love sent .

    What a wonderful lady! She was my sons aid in school & an exemplary human being! The world would be a better place with more people like her!! I graduated with her sweet son Trent, he was my friend in school. After she lost her husband she would watch out the window daily, I passed her house on my way home, but then needed to stop frequently to chat with her. We would reminisce about all the school fun times, and it was a joy talking to her. I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. God bless this family, sorry for your loss!!
