Herb and I were shocked and saddened to hear of Lin's passing. Our thoughts are with Roger and his family as they manage this tragic time. God bless.

On behalf of Kristen, myself and those of us whom Lin brought together out of a shared interest in Sherlock Holmes in 1987, forming a group known as 'The Singular Society of the Baker Street Dozen', which she led for many years, I'd like to extend our deepest sympathies to Roger and the boys for their tragic loss. Many friendships were made, and have endured through the years, because of Lin's generous efforts and founding of the group. I'm sure we who remain shall treasure the memories of those early laughter-filled meetings in her home for the rest of our lives.
