Linda co-hosted a wedded shower for me at her home. With her background in French cooking, she lovingly created a beautiful display of food. Her kindness showed up in many aspects of the shower. Her kindness has also shown up in the gentle and kind son she raised.

Linda was our neighbor and a very sweet lady. She was always especially nice to my eight-year-old daughter Rebekah. We will miss seeing her walking Lola and stopping for a chat. Our condolences to her family, especially Raymond.
