I met Linda through a mutual friend when we were teenagers and although life took us on different paths I was fortunate to meet up with her again last year and then again a few weeks ago after all those years had passed. Visiting with Linda felt as though we picked up where we had left off 50 years ago. She was the same rare person I knew and remembered, possibly the sweetness and kindest of anyone you could ever meet. I truly regret not having had more time with her. Rest In Peace Linda.

Linda was a wonderful woman. We shared many enjoyable adventures over the years. I was surprised and very saddened to read of her passing. I shall always remember our time spent together when we were younger and just starting our careers. Love you always, Linda.
Larry, my sincere condolences, I know you kept her going when things were tough.

Such a sweet, sweet soul... Linda was like family to me, my Mom's best friend of over 50 years. Linda was always in our lives and always there with her sweet, kind smile and a listening ear. You truly couldn't ask for a nicer, kinder person... Linda was the best there is. What a blessing to know someone like her. Heaven has gained a radiant angel, and she will be dearly missed. Love you Linda

Linda was a close family friend, a lot like an aunt to me growing up. As a kid, I loved getting to stay over with her; she would always take us out to Pat's Pizza, then we'd indulge in watching comedies, eating candy, and snuggling with her cat Sasha. I also have many great memories of more recent years, the times I got to spend with Linda and family, usually around Christmas. Her place was always warm and welcoming, and she always had a stray cat or two who picked her place to call home.

What I will remember most about Linda was the love she showed to others. Whether it was through a conversation, a compliment, a congratulations, or a card - you could see she was genuinely wishing good things for everyone in life. She was non-judgmental, open, and honest - in a humorous way. She kept a very positive outlook on life, which I always admired about her. I will miss her lots, as I know so many who got to be part of her life will. Rest peacefully Linda, love you..

Linda had the kindest most loving heart and was a very dear longtime friend to all of our family and especially to Pat Everett. She loved my Italian cookies and would be sure to let me know how much she enjoyed them. She will be missed by so many. Fly high, Linda. Love you!

Linda was my godmother, but I always sort of thought of her as a bonus aunt. I remember so many fun times at her apartment when I was a kid, eating junk food and listening to music and staying up late. Just about every visit kicked off with a trip to Baskin-Robbins, a ritual that I eagerly looked forward to. Later in life, I enjoyed Linda’s company during the holidays, when my mom, my sisters, and I would stop by and exchange goodies and gifts. Linda was a kind friend and had a fun (and sometimes mischievous) sense of humor. Her welcoming spirit, warm smile, and sparkling blue eyes will be missed. Rest easy, sweetie. Love you.

Linda was a very dear friend to me. We met at age 16 and stayed close friends for 53 years. From our first trip to California at age 18 to lots of lifetime events, we shared many good times.I will always hold memories of her kindness and good times that we shared close to my heart. RIP Linda, Love you ❤️
