Linda and I spent countless hours together. We enjoyed walks, shopping, carrying out innovations to help her navigate her days, and much more. We would sing Billy Joel and Beatles songs together, and share our laughs, woes, the news of the days. I will miss those times and even the crazy unexpected ones, when she needed me to bring her spare key when locked out, pick up an unexpected need, or help with a computer or tv glitch.
Be at peace Linda and so happy with the amazing vision you now have been given back, in your heavenly home.
Condolences to the family. I know how challenging these last years have been.

It was a privilege to have met Linda in a time when she needed some help. A friend of ours asked me if I would like to come along and help Linda finish cleaning her basement. I said sure, I wasn't sure what I would be doing. After we arrived at Linda's and started going through bags of clothes. Well after describing so many pieces of clothing to Linda. My funny side took over, I was singing and trying things on taking her hand and touching the clothes. Linda loved her clothes and how she could remember them after loosing her sight.
Well after that day, Linda asked me to come back and help organize somethings. Now I was reading mail, running her to the bank, and fixing her food.
Linda was a smart woman who wanted to live her life her way. In spite of all her ailments she was looking forward to her trip to Colorado. Unfortunately life threw Linda a curve that prevented her from going in July. But she was pushing forward in hopes of going someday. That day never came for her. Rest in peace, live like an Angel.
Love and miss you,
