I am so deeply saddened by this terrible loss. I met Linda at her cousin Nikki's bridal shower in 2004 and remember her very well. I corresponded with Ma Lois, her grandma, for many years and learned much about her through our letters. I remember receiving baby pictures of her son Derek from Ma Lois. This news has haunted me all day ... I may not have known Linda well but she left an impression and I will remember her fondly. My deepest sympathies to all who loved her. Nikki, my friend since 1980, my love to you especially. I know you thought the world of your beloved cousin.

Dear family of Linda,
I had the pleasure of working with Linda many years ago at LCLE. Although she was much younger than I, I recall being impressed by her wit, her drive, her knowledge and her confidence. She made an impression on me. I am so sorry for your loss.
