Hi there I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I didn't know Coral but this the only connection I can find for Linda riddle. We found Linda's patriarchal blessing in an old set of scriptures at the DI the other day and wondered if there was family or someone who wanted to have it. Please feel free to contact me if someone is interested.

Dear Betty and Dorretta, I don't know the rest of your family, but I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. You folks are so sweet and loving and I'm sure the rest of your family are too. May our Heavenly Father bless you with His special comfort. Lillian Campbell

Dear Dorretta, Linda, Betty and Russell,So sorry about the passing of Corral Ann. If she was like the rest of your family then I know she is a great and kind person. The Riddle family has always been part of my list of Great People. I am so glad to have know so many of you. I would have been there to be able to see you all again but somehow a flu bug has had me down for a few days. Patsy too would have come but had too much on her plate and said she would send a card. Take care of each other and be good to each other as life seems to go too fast. Best Wishes-Sherma
