Linda was a kind soul and a loving and generous friend with the best laugh ever. I loved her so much. My son Eric always thought the world of her, too, and this picture of them has been one of my favorites. She always loved Eric - I think he reminded her of Tom.

Linda, Though there are way too many years since I’ve seen you, the memories of all our wild and crazy times will never be forgotten! Your laugh was so contagious and most definitely unique! I picture my mom following the sound of your laughter and finding her way to visit you! She loved your laugh!!
So thankful you’re no longer in pain.
RIP my friend.

I send my deepest sympathy to all of the Haywood family. Linda and I were the very best of friends growing up, and that tight bond that we shared, never disappeared over the years.
No matter the miles apart, we still had that same bond, as if time had stood still.
I was fortunate to be able to spend time with her and Mom, Dad and Cheryl a couple of years ago. I treasure that time we had. You all were like my second family.
The good times will forever live in my heart.
I am so saddened, but I pray she is at peace and out of pain.
May the family find comfort in the fond memories that you share, and hold them close to your heart, for she will always be there.
You will all be in my prayers at this most difficult time.
R.I.P. old friend

My sympathy to the Haywood Family. I have known Linda since we met at Natick High School. Linda loved life and everyone in her life. My phone calls with Linda always included fits of laughter as we strolled down memory lane. Many happy memories of friendship with Linda. I will miss her not being here...the angels will love her. Rest In Peace .
