  1. Landy Jones and family

    To the family May the God of heaven and earth sustain each and everyone during this time, and wrap loving arms to comfort, strengthen and mend the broken hearted.

  2. My heartfelt condolences to Brenda’s family & friends. I met Brenda 4 years ago this month when I started working at DSW Distribution Center after Greater Linden Dev Corp closed. She was so helpful and continued to be a friend and mentor the entire time I was at the DC. (I will always remember that she taught me a trick to assemble boxes faster and how to change the tape on a tape gun without getting tangled in the tape!) It was especially fun to learn about our “Linden” connections. My thoughts and prayers go out to all who are grieving over her loss.
