My sweet Bunny. When I came into your family, you were this beautiful, outgoing teenager. You made me feel wanted in that family even when I tried to hold it over you that I was "older".. by a few years. You gave to everyone, with your huge heart, took care of your Grandparents at a young age. Then you left and took a piece of my heart. You built a life that was bigger than your heart. I love to read these stories and how much you meant to so many. Texas was always in your heart but Kuwait had your in theirs. I know you loved it there as your eyes sparkled when you spoke of your life there.

Rest in peace Linda, I don't remember much from my childhood but I do remember her voice, the warmth and happy energy she had. she made my worst days better and my good days great.
One morning on a school day, I was in the 7th grade, my dad lost his temper and let it all out on me and it made me feel worthless. We went into the car and he drove us to school, the radio was on 99.7 (dad knew I liked it) and I heard Linda's voice, the way she talked made me feel better and I wanted to be a person who makes people feel that way.

Thank you for the kind and loving impact you had through the radio, you gave me an insight that I'll never forget. you will always be my favorite.

I came to Kuwait after years in major market U.S. radio, and in collaboration with Information Minister Sheikh Saud Nasir al-Sabah, in 1994 I created Superstation FM 99.7, Radio Kuwait. The station went on the air as the first computer-controlled broadcast studio operation in the world. I chose Linda (Linda Lou) for mornings because of her warm engagement and gift of gab - and that choice was validated both by her years in that slot as well as the very welcome reception she received. It's sad both that Linda is gone, as is Superstation 99.7. A wonderful era it was...

Been listening to the morning show since forever and I quit listening to the radio once you went back to the states. Your voice will always be in my mind whenever I tune into 99.7 RKFM. Rest In Peace.

Thank you Linda for all the happy memories. You were a like a welcome cool fresh breeze in our hot desert airways; you helped life get back on track after the invasion, you helped us feel like we're living in a home again. Thank you for everything you've done. I'll always remember your happy voice on the radio, you made millions of us smile every morning. RIP. Inshallah you're in a better place now.
