Lindy Lou will be so dearly missed. She made every occasion a special celebration...so much thought and effort put into every gift given, every card sent, every favor granted, just everything. She duplicated my Mom's peach puff pie recipe as a BD gift to AC and made me quarts of homemade clam chowder soup the special way...priceless gifts especially when done while she wasn't feeling on top of the world...a friend with a heart of gold. Sleep in peace with the angels, Lindy Lou, until we meet again in celebration. Love you always. Tom, my deepest heartfelt sympathy to you and the family.

Dear Tom & Family....I always admired Linda for the dynamic and inspirational lady that she was. Multi-talented, a good cook, creative, a good story teller, very giving, animal lover, antique collector, etc---she excelled at everything she tried. To think we got close because I worked with her Dad at the antique store(and he called me his 4th daughter) I feel such a great loss in my life--I will always remember all of our phone conversations, lunches, visits...but most of all I will remember the celebration we had at the winery 2 years ago...we all had so much fun and laughed(and never had a sip of wine). This great lady suffered enough on earth, though it was hard to let her go, she wanted to walk into the light and become an angel. May eternal rest be granted unto her and may you, Tom, and the rest of her family find peace. Linda will never be forgotten and she will be greatly missed........

I was very sorry to hear about this. My heartfelt feelings go out to your family. We grew up together as part of the Franklin Park group. Shared several times where Linda was knocking Rob and I around. She was always his biggest defender. I am sorry I cannot be there now.

My dear cousin, Linda will be remembered for her laughter that was contagious especially when she and Tom learned to salsa at my house and she was compassionate to both people and pets! I have Lucy's cousin, a silky terrior today because of her intervention. I am sure she will continue to intervene for others wherever she is. My greatest sympathy to Tanya, her daughter and Tom as well as her siblings, Pam, Lori and Rob Jr.

I met Linda thru AC and Renee, I sat next to her at lunch and we could have talked for hours. She just made me feel like we had known each other for years. And when I saw her a few more time she would great me with her warm smile. I mourn the loss of such a spirited woman. My prayers are with her family and friends,

Oh my dear friend. Too many years that we did not keep in touch. My heart aches at the loss of such a wonderful woman. You opened my eyes to a future, as the independent woman that I could be. I so wish our lives could have continued as we were, but not meant to be. My love goes to All who will live with your loss. I do plan to see you on the other side, Love from me to you.
